So, I've got my 2nd wedding coming up in October.
The B&G want their reception held in a old dark ballroom with dark slanted ceilings that are at least 20 feet high. This room is about the size of a gym. There is a stage where the band will play and a dance floor. Oh, and the reception hall will be lit only by christmas lights and votive candles on the tables
I'm not sure what to do.. I'm pretty confident with using my 580exii flash and I have 4 alien bee's that I can use. However, I'm afraid the venue will just be too dark with only christmas lights as a light source.
Does anyone have any suggestions on lighting? I could probably get two 430exii's and crosslight the dancefloor. Not sure what to do about the rest of the area though. I'm afraid there won't be any ambient light to blend with the on-camera flash.
I've expressed my concern to the B&G and still may consider giving their deposit back.
