    I am doing a large-scale photo project involving five or six couples dancing in a large warehouse. I was thinking along the lines of a triangle shaped scheme for the lighting, I want to have good lighting while still leaving some strong shadows in the periphery. I have several reflectors, three Alien Bee 800s, grids, softboxes in all three sizes, and access to extra lighting if needed, both HMI and flash. Any suggestions, tips, or advice concerning this project? thank you for your time.

    Keep the main directional and high. Hair lights and back lighting is also very effective. Let us know how it turned out.
