I've gotten the opportunity to shoot a school fashion show a bunch of my friends are helping organize, and managed to get myself to be the photographer for the event.
I currently use what's in my gear list in my sig, so the 24-70L, but I've read that the 70-200L 2.8 is probably better due to the allowable range. Although I will be close to the stage if not right up against the stage.
So my first question would be what is a preferred location to shoot from? I would guess at the end of the runway where they stop before they turn back around. Should I be straight on? or left/right of the models?
Would a monopod be acceptable?
I am most likely going to avoid flash as it may not be allowed.
Any other tips from the people who do this/have done this? I'm trying to help out my friends by documenting this for them as well as for experience so any help would be greatly appreciated!
