I had a super busy summer myself and I haven't posted a single bit of it...

Over the next little while I will post some of my stuff from this summer. As you said, how can you grow without critique?

Keep the images coming man!

Hey Lloyd, I think it's time to get off your butt and post again! How do you set up your lighting for reception? You have a flash on a light stand that you bounce? How about when your shooting outside? Just wanted to pick your brain a bit. Thanks!

From #3 on down I L-O-V-E them. The mood is great in each. The only thing that bugs me is that big circular thing in #4. In my mind, it competes with the b/g for attention. I would mute it a bit. Hopefully someday I'll be as busy a photographer as some of you others. I must say I'm a bit envious. :cry:

I've been going crazy for the past while so I haven't had time to post stuff up. sorry. as for reception lighting, the defacto answer is 'it depends'. Every reception is a different situation and has to be evaluated individually. What I do at one reception will not be what I do at the next. Some receptions are fine with bounced on-camera flash and some need 4 lights on stands placed strategically through the room.

As for outside, that also depends. Sometimes no lights, sometimes one, sometimes 5. Sorry, I can't give you any go-to setups as there aren't any.

Out of the OP's shots, I want to use the flower shot idea correctly (I've tried before without good results), and I like and wish I could simulate the brick wall shot. I'd also like to have a situation where the overhead shot would be possible; full frame would be so helpful with many of those things.

No, there aren't any standard setups, but for the dance floor I find that my 3 flashes, placed at varied angles around the dance floor, with 1 or 2 bare and either level or pointed down from a high point and another with a white umbrella seems to provide me with a combination of options: I can give myself soft fill light, edge light, side light, etc., but adjusting where I'm shooting from. Plus I can set the lights on separate groups with the skyports, so I can select one or two lights alone for different effects.

I find that to be a useful setup that gives me lots of creative options. Would more or less lights be effective too? Surely, but I don't have the experience with those. Also, I'm a fan of the edge light and hard point light sources in dance shots, so that's probably why I try to use bare flash often during dances. Here's a shot I think came out pretty well in spite of its flaws, using that very same lighting setup:

Canon 40D with 24-70L @ 50mm f/3.2, ISO probably 800;

BTW I'm open to suggestions for generally lighting a reception. If I absolutely had to I might just position flashes in corners of the room and bounce off the ceiling, but I expect that hot spots and brow shadows would occur with that.

Going crazy huh? :) I guess that's why your picturecrazy :) lol Good luck with what your doing!!!

I understand that there is not one set setup, but with ceiling not too hight, bouncing is good? I've got a wedding on Dec. 20, I've got 2 flashes and I'm practicing at home at night, just putting flashes on light stands taking pics of my boy, bounced/direct flash. I'm getting an umbrella soon, so I'll tray difused light.

Very much a fan of the first image. However, the whole set is stellar. Great work.
