Hello, for a job for my company i need to shoot a first communion at a church and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I am not very familiar with communions and it's a bit short notice. I will be doing photography while my boss is shooting video. I am not sure if i can use flash or not, i am going to try to find out tomorrow (the shoot is saturday). I will try to go to the church tomorrow also, or possibly friday or early before the shoot.
I am guessing there are a few key shots, like the kid giving the communion, eating the waiver but i am not sure. Can anyone give suggestions on key shots?
Also i have to shoot the reception by myself which i have never done before so i am wondering what i should expect and what kind of shots i should get. I am pretty nervous about the shoot.
I can shoot with 2 cameras at once, i'll have my 5D II and 1D II, along with 16-35mm and 24-105mm. If it's low light i have my 85mm 1.8 and i am going to be buying either the 135mm f2.0 or 200mm f2.8, if anyone has any suggestions on what lenses i should use i would appreciate it. I am guessing for the reception i will use flash on both cameras.
