No I don't. Most professional level grip equipment is silver/chrome/stainles​s steel; it's just a more durable finish for when things are being constantly tossed about and bagged up together. ;)

Hmm, I always make it a point to buy my studio grip gear in their black variants, for I am afraid of intrusive reflections on the subjects coming from the silver/shiny stands and arms. It does shew each and every one scratch, though.

Here's my standard setup for a reception (well, as much as you can have a "standard"). Bare speed lights as kickers and a strobe bounced as key light, or turned off for more dramatic backlighting. First shot is a pullback...

Wow! Very nice. You get a sense of how dark it actually is by looking at the candles on the tables in the pull back shot.

Do you change camera settings or the flash powers depending on which direction you are shooting or do you just have a single setting that you run around with?
How do you turn off the strobe?
How are you powering the speed lights?

TIA!

I can control the speed lights on-camera, in manual. The strobe I have to change the power manually, but I can turn it off and on by keeping it on a separate channel. I use 622c's to trigger, and use eneloops to power the speed lights. I've got a vagabond mini for the strobe if I can't safely plug into an outlet. Mostly I use the ISO to control my exposure, but sometimes I'll tweak the power to get different ratios if I've got the time. Hope that helps.

Thanks!

Looks like I have to look into these controllers. Everything I've done is manual on the flash. This could open up a lot of possibilities being able to change power remotely. Do these work on Canon flashes or only the YNs?

They work with just about any Canon compatible flash. They're convenient (especially the TX unit), but it's not game-changing, I'll still use my ISO more than my flash control to adjust.

Just wondering....If the ambient light is so low won't the people object or get annoyed by the frequent flashes when you take shots?

What's the alternative? It's just a quick flash. That's actually another reason I prefer not to have a flash on the camera, they don't see the light coming from you, so they don't pay as much attention.
