I have christmas party coming up on base and was asked to shoot it. I have all of the equipment below plus a few different options for lights. The shots will be from the waist up (That's what they are wanting)
This is going to be shot indoors with tungsten lights that are very dim. I was planning on gelling the flash/strobe units and shooting tungsten WB so there's no mix up in color (I believe it should be a CTO gel?)
Due to space I may not have TOO much room to set up equipment so here are the two set ups I was looking at and the questions I have about them.
Set up 1 involves three speedlites (One 580 EX II and two 430 EX II)
580 and 430 on light stands off to the left and right with umbrellas (solid) and the last 430 for helping light up the back ground. The only reason why I want one for the background is I don't have much space to work with so I can't have them stand too far away from the set up (I'm afraid of having the double shadow cast since I can't move them away from it)
Set up 2 involves two AB1600 borrowed from a friend of mine both with solid umbrellas off to my left and right high angled down.
Now because the light is going to fall off should I have just one as a main light and the other off to the side of them to help light the background as well?
I guess the issue is dealing with the small space and getting rid of harsh shadows. Any ideas?
