| p.1 #1 · Film era Lighting verse todays technology, is it useable? |
I agreed a year ago to shoot a friends sons weddng for free as they are Quite lmited on cash, having never done anything like this before I immediately got my friend that went to school for photography (in France) and had his own business doing weddings, portraits etc. but ran away from photography once digital was clearly here to stay (roughly 12 years ago ). so he has no knowledge of the advancements of lighting control since then. I also have noknowledge past or present but am a fast learner and have 6 weeks to play till wedding.
He still has many of his large format cameas (hasselblad I think) and lenses as well as his his old canon film bodies and glass, so I am positive he had what the pros would use for lighting back then as well as remote triggers from that era. I can fnd out the specific models if it may be useable, but didnt want to get ahead of myself before checking here, I would not mind throwing $500 to $1000 into this as it is for 2 great kids.
What I have for gear is a 5d mII 24-70 f2.8 L , 70-200 F2.8 L is usm , Wireless remote trigger for shutter, 580 EXII flash, 50d, ef-s 17-55 f2.8, 52gb of cf cards. I have started him down the path to dgital by selling him my old sony f-828 and now he is wanting to buy my 50d and 17-55 should I sell them, so the lighting will definately get future use by at least me if not both of us lol. So should I figure out what he has or is it pretty much more work than it is worth and would be uncontrollable by cameras anyway, so just rent modern lighting from somewhere for the weekend?
