Hi imagine you have to shoot in a white square box about 15meters long for a wedding cermony, how would you setup your lights? Like wise if the ceremony is in the same box but this time its all black, how would your lighting setup change?

My approach for both cases will be a sandwich lighting with a lighting 2:1 ratio, shoot closeup with shallow dof. I can not think of any other way which will produce decent images. If you have better ideas I would love to hear it.

Does the box have any light sources or windows? I rarely shoot in boxes, but i've shot ceremonies all over the place, and i've never needed to light them. Flash can be intrusive, especially how much a pro shoots.

Assume no light source or window. Just a totally white or black box.

That's just basic studio lighting then.

White: two flashes, left and right, bounce.
Black: two flashes, left and right, direct.

Sandwich lighting sounds delicious! Make mine a Roast Beef, please.

What weddings are you shooting in a box? Is this a riddle, and has no doors or windows...
