It was initially posted three years ago, but I keep it up to date. Glad it helps people
Tim it helped us a ton at this last wedding. My biggest problem was getting a good side lighting that was not too harsh and/or caused shadows. When we set up at 5:00pm we had daylight coming into the room. After it got dark, i had to go turn the lights way way down. I was at -1 with my 580's for these...What i difference. Glad we made the change. I think im going to use strobes. They cycle a lot faster.
Had a tough time with afternoon sun coming into the room and the side lighting. I had a white ceiling i could have bounced off some more, but i didnt want to loose all the ambient so i had to deal with DJ's lights causing shadows on back wall
Next wedding will be a very nice reception venue. The walls in this place were this UGLY brown gold color so i didn't want to bounce off it. Still tinkering with the set ups. Its only the 2nd time we have had a chance to use but we plan on using it all season....So all help appreciated
