I just want to understand it. So I can better approach it in the future. Is there no way to fully control this beast? Especially with my personal style of bringing in as much ambient light as possible?

Cheers guys.

Unless you have a rapport with the club's lighting director, no.

Your best bet in a situation with the lights in motion is to take the "best of three". Fire three frames in a spot where the lighting "works" for you and go from there. Watch the patterns of the lighting for a second, and also keep an ear out on the music. If you sense the music is going to change (a breakdown, peak, new mix) the lighting will change unless you are in a dodgy club with no tech or the lights on autopilot.

Though for places that are more casual, you can kind of disregard that since the lighting there will be pinspots and practical (candles, lamps) lighting. In that case it is static.

I usually don't work the dancefloor per se, but the perimeter. I'm actually the opposite of most of the people here, I shoot (and prefer to) shoot nightclubs over festivals. The dancefloor is usually too crowded to get an effective photo of anyone, but the perimeter has the action too.

I also tend to use full ambient light (no flash!) when possible.

Hey. A quick question about off camera flash.

Is handheld the better option (direct for bounce and some styling) etc?
I have had a go with doing this but found it a bit clumsy to adjust my zoom while using a wrist strap on the flash so I could 'let go' of it and pick it up again between zooming and shooting.

Or do people use a bracket and just direct the flash head?

I use off camera flash, and still able to adjust zoom. With anything, you'll get better over time.

I love off-camera wireless flash with (cheap) triggers but am super annoyed that I lose the AF beam - one of the solutions is to have another flash mounted on the camera just for that purpose - but this severely adds to the bulk of holding that with one hand and then the flash with the other hand. I wonder if there's any smaller flash that will do a AF beam or if there's any other way to combat this..

I asked this question yesterday and was given the answer of using yongnuo YN-622C wireless flash transceivers. They work with curtain 1 and 2 and ETTL. They have a AF assist IR beam as well :). Can get one for just the AF assist beam and use a cable to the flash or get the two and be fully wireless. Were 60 GBP on ebay for 2 so I have gone for them (much cheaper than a new flash with IR beams).
