Ah! I can't believe this has snuck up on me. I was asked to take somewhat formal pictures at the winter formal at my school later this week - which I agreed to. I have been planning on planning (oh the irony) for weeks, but suddenly here it is! I am going to probably have to flash heads with possible a softbox as my main light and the second with.. an umbrella (?) as my fill. I haven't seen the location (though I have been asking for an idea of the area) but from my understanding I might have a 'classy' rock wall to shoot against. One of my main concerns are posing. People are going to be wearing anything from gowns to cocktail dresss, sport jackets to suits. One thing I do know - triangles are good. Leaning on the 'back' foot is good. Tipping chin down slightly for the girls is good and tipping chin up slightly for guys is good. But otherwise, I don't even know where to start looking. It would be lovely to have some posing 'samples' on hand - but of course I don't want to be stealing images off the net. So.. here is my questions in point form. Positioning of lights? Lighting ratio? Posing - guys, girls, couples, small groups? Some good jokes to crack? *kidding*.. er.. maybe not. Any help would be appreicated. Thanks!
