Finally the first chance to shoot an event has arrived. I'll be shooting a baptism for free next Saturday, so I think it could be a good chance to practice.
The baptism will take place in a catholic church(flash is allowed). My gear is just a 40D, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 and 3 Vivitar 285HV.
My questions are:
-I don't feel that comfortable with the use of flash yet, should I just leave it at home and try to shoot just with available light or rent a 580EX II?
-If I decided to shoot just with available light which lens would you rent; Canon 17-55 IS or Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS?
-Besides formals and ceremony pictures, what else should I shoot?
-During the ceremony is better shooting really close or use the long zoom?
Thanks in advance.
