I've been press-ganged into being the Party Photographer for my Number-Two-Daughter's Middle School graduation party. I did this before with Number-One-Daughter, but now I've been "asked" to do it in a more official (yet unpaid) manner. I liked the candid party shots I did. I'm not too pleased with this shot.
This shot is 1/60th sec at f/2.8, 24mm focal length. I used my 580EX flash. I shot into the crowd. I assume I used the flip-down wide-angle filter on the flash.
How should I shoot this scene? The party will be held in the same room this coming May.
What I've got to work with:
3 Britek strobes with umbrellas and diffusers
(You can see my studio gear in THIS THREAD, but don't reply to that thread)
If I go with the strobes, I guess I can have my arm twised into purchasing three Pocket Wizard transceivers (seeing as my wife is the blame for accepting the gig). I wouldn't want trigger cords going around the room. I don't have a remote power supply for the strobe heads, so I'll have to use extension cords.
I'm not a professional in any sense. I'm more of an OCD amateur. I'm not getting paid for this gig. I see it as a learning experience.
