Hello everyone, This is my first post. I just discovered this site last week and have since probably spent like ten to twenty hours in here. I absolutely love this forum especially, and have viewed most of the posts from the past year. I may have needed to post this question on another forum, but I have spent the most of my time in this forum, and really like what a lot of you have to say. It kinda feels like I've gotten to know y'all a lil over the past week, and look forward to posting, commenting more in the future! I'm asking quite a few questions, so even if you only have a lil' input, I'll be very grateful!!!!:hail: My question is about shooting a 70th bday party this weekend. It is being held indoors at a banquet hall with mostly flourescent lighting and some windows. I am not sure on the size of the windows and I won't get to check them out 'til the day before. I'm using two Canon 350D's with a wide angle, 18-55, 35-105, and my buddie's 200mm Canon lense w/ image stabalization and my tripod. The problem is that I have no flash except for the built in. I will mostly be shooting a photo journalistic style, but they do want some posed shots so I have to set up an area w/ a backdrop or something. I was thinking of setting it beside one of the windows, and using some kind of makeshift reflector to light from the other side, with the on camera for a fill. What white balance setting should I use w/ a combo of window daylight and flourscent and on camera flash? Also, what do you reccommed for the reflector? I've read on this forum of people using poster board, the car windshield reflectors, and sheets. I probably won't have an assistant so it will need to be positioned and stationary. Also, which lense would you use? Does anyone know about using the image stabilizer on the 200mm - I've read that I can get a longer exposure using IS and that could definitiely come in handy w/ my lack of good flash, Any suggestions. What ISO to shoot on? Exposure? Apurture? I will do some playing around as I'm using a digital and can see what looks good, but your suggestions are greatly appreciated. I also am asking for any other suggestions you may have in general for the shoot. How to make a 70 year old woman look her best? THANK YOU !!!!!!!!
