It's going to be photographing my nephew's first communion on Sunday, starting at the church and ending at the park. I'm worried about the church part because I have never done photography at a church, so I don't really know what to expect. It's a medium sized church, not very fancy, but it has a high ceiling. The lighting I think has a yellow-ish tint from what I can remember last time I went there.

Any suggestions/tips/advic​e for me? Maybe what lens to use? And if I should use flash or no flash? Tripod or no tripod and just freely move around? Any minimum

For flash, I just recently got a Yongnuo 468-II that I still haven't learned how to use well with the different settings it offers. Don't have a diffuser/softbox for it though.
I was thinking of using the 55-250mm lens so I could be able to zoom in a little if I'm not close enough, but I'm also considering if the 50mm 1.8 would be better because of the lighting and it having a lower f# than the other one, but I really don't know.

I won't be able to go to the church to check out the lighting and maybe take some test shots until Friday, so until then I would really like to get some advice on how I can make this shoot turn out positively.

Thanks in advance!



Cheers,
Nora
