Hi, new member here looking for some advice.
I recently started working in nightclubs but can't get the style of photos I want, would anyone be able to help?
I use a 6D + Canon 24-70 f2.8 + 430EX II combo (+ Stofen at 45 degrees), and I find my lighting in photos to be very inconsistent and unappealing. My settings are around ISO 3200, f4-6.3, and 1/25 - 1/40.
The venue I shoot has a very high black ceiling so bouncing flash to ceiling is useless. The lighting can be very annoying as well as they flash very quickly, so I use a high shutter speed in case the club strobes go off making my photos over exposed.

Here are some of my photos for reference

I'm thinking of getting a 580ex ii due to the more powerful bouncing I think I need, and an off camera flash cord. Will this help?
I've seen loads of photos on this thread and they just look amazing, I really hope someone can help me!

I use negative flash compensation, actually. Haha, not more like you would be getting with the 580EX. I personally like more light to be ambient than flashed. Only thing you can do is drag your shutter more or increase your ISO.

I don't think you need a new flash for this kind of shooting, black light parties, just like the one showed us above needs to have more subtle bounce light and more ISO, slow shutter and of course lotsa BLACK light. Position your subjects near the black light and snap away.

Haven't posted in a minute because I really don't shoot EDM (pop-dance), but here's some fun stuff from recent history.
