| p.1 #1 · Got an event with a large group shot coming up. Check my work. |
This is a little outside my day-to-day experience. I'm covering a party and will mostly be shooting candids, and im comfortable with lighting those, but will have a couple of group shots to deal with -- one big, one small. My understanding is this will be outdoors, but I'm still getting detail from the client.
I'll be armed with a pair of B800s, a speedlight, triggers, battery pack, stands. Modifiers are a 64" PLM, which I'm confident can light the 10-person group comfortably, and a beauty dish, which I think will be out of its element.
If I pull the trigger now, I can have a 2nd PLM in time for the event.
So, the large group. 40 people. My thought process is to use both AB800s and two PLMs (or a PLM and the beauty dish? Is that insane?) to light the group from in front, and the speedlight as a kicker behind the back row. I plan to be up on a stepladder.
What am I not thinking through? Where can I simplify? Do you foresee any snags I'm blundering into? Your wisdom is greatly appreciated.
