I've been asked to do some photography for Wing Chun, and it is totally outside of my comfort zone as I've never done sports. (I tend to do landscapes, macro, and maybe portraits for friends) I'm trying to figure out the best way to approach my camera setup.
Indoor, very small "dojo", terrible lighting (half are fluorescent, half are incandescent at seemingly random placement)
I had planned on using my 50mm f/1.4 and 17-55 f/2.8.
Was going to try on camera bounce flash with a speedlight and black foamie thing. Do people even use flash for this kind of thing? I clearly am unsure how I should go about this.
I'm not sure what speed is really necessary to "stop" the motion with martial arts.
Flash sync speed is 1/250... will highspeed sync work if I have to go faster than this?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
