Been tasked to cover a gala concert at a certain school and I am faced with a dilemma right now. My problem is that I am limited with equipment to use in lighting up a fairly big stage. I only have...
1 400watt strobe
2 150 watt strobes
1 12 ft light stand
2 8 ft light stands
1 YN 560 IV speedlite
2 yn rf 605 trancievers (compatible with both 603 and 602 yns.
2yn rf 602 receivers
70d and 600d
ef 70-300 is usm
ef 24 105
sigmalux 50 1.4 and
18-55 bak up lens in case I need it for wide shots.
With the listed gears, I will be encountering spotlights of different colors during the presentations (all performances are in a group with minimun of 15 persons per number) and will surely be a head ache with regards to white balance. So I have to over power them with flash. The stage size is approximately 25ft width x 15ft height(?). here is the image
How would I do this? My plan is to place my 400 watt in a 12 ft stand at the basketball right side and place my two 150s on both sides of the stage and aim them on the gray roof of the covered court... My speedlite on board for fill and tight situations. I can shoot anywhere I want (except up stage of course) but my worry is if my strobes can do the job. The program will start with the sun totally out of the scene.
Hope you can give me better ideas guys. Thanks in advance.
