Right I think this may be the best place for this question.
My wife's family help with a sort of exchange program between the local fire brigade and the one from their twin town in Germany. Every year one group heads over to the other country and vice versa the next. This year the Germans are here and my wife's uncle is throwing a party in his barn. It'll be a disco type affair with a mobile bar and a DJ in there so rather dark, and rather than the usual red-eyed-out rabbit-in-the-headlights look photos I thought I'd try to see if I can manage to get some good ones in there with this shiny photography equipment I've got over the last few years.
Lighting kit wise I've got a 540EZ and a Nissin Di622 both modded to work with a trigger plugged in, and I've some wireless triggers. Also have some light stands that go up to 8' high. Now my easy cop out would be to bounce off camera to the ceiling normally but it's a 20' ceiling in there and to make matters more fun it's a gable roof.
One suggestion I've been given is to put the stands up to max height in the corners of the area we are using and fire them direct to the ceiling to bounce the light back down. I'd thought of firing them across the room at each other and shooting avoiding getting the opposite flash in shot. Though the suggestion would probably give a more even light.
I'm going over a bit earlier to try setting up and taking some shots to see if it's worth it, just wondering if anyone had attempted something similar and had some advice. I'm guessing I may struggle to have them provide enough light to be usable even at full power but it'd be nice to avoid on camera flashing.
