Re: Group Photo Lighting Advice Needed


Are you putting everyone ON the stage, or will you putting them ON the cafeteria floor with the stage as the backdrop (curtains closed), or do you have risers for both the floor and stage to tier the group from floor to stage?

I'd be looking at renting some lighting for the shoot, something you can get up high and with power. I realize that you've been "volunteered" ... but they should be able to "volunteer" some $$$ toward the effort if they are going to "skip out" on paying for someone who is properly equipped, skilled, experienced and trained. I don't mind helping out, but if quality is the goal ... there is a difference between overcoming "handcuffed" to achieve "acceptable" and putting out a good product.

I got "volunteered" similarly way back when ... my local rental house was instrumental in helping me handle something that was more than I was prepared for ... both with gear & knowledge.

+1 @ Brian's ladder (or shooting from the stage down to the floor).
