I'm thinking of purchasing two Einsteins with two large PLB's for a shoot in NYC.
It's only for one photo but its a photo of 200 people for an event in central park.
I was thinking of getting the vag mini's (one for each) setting them up high on c-stands and cross lighting them from a bridge looking down onto the group.
Does anyone have any suggestions or see any problems with this?
Will the two lights be powerful enough? I'm shooting around sunset, maybe a little bit before, and have a 5D mark II, so I don't mind pushing the ISO to 1600 - the largest print will be 8x10's as a party favor.
I have another shoot coming up a few weeks after for a 40 person group shot which is why I would rather buy than rent. I'd prefer not to rent as I don't like throwing my money away but if the profoto's are the better option (even just for one shot) then so be it.
Light modifier tips anyone? I'll be roughly 70-80 feet away up on a bridge so I'm looking for a powerful yet even spread.
Thanks for all your input!
