I was asked to shoot some images for a local high school jazz band. 4 kids. They are doing very well and are in pretty high demand. They want a website & promotional materials to expand their reach.

I ma more of a sports shooter and this is a little foreign to me. So I am looking for any and all advice I can get to help me out here.

I have 4 58-0EX's and an ST-E2 to run them off well as a set of AB800's....and no idea on what I'm a doing with them yet

Anyone willing to offer up some advice & setting ideas?

If you're shooting them performing, I wouldn't use flash unless I absolutely had to because you'll lose the nice colors. You do have to contend with faces in black holes next to hot spots though, so some fill might be good.
But it's hard to say what the trends are these days, so I'd ask them to show me some examples of what they have in mind?
