    Well I have my first wedding to do the 18th and I need help with the lighting.
    Here's the details:

    Wedding ceremony outside 5:30 pm

    Cocktail party inside ball roomish type place

    dinner inside as well

    Here's what lighting I have:

    2 soft boxes
    1 strobe with barndoor
    2 umbrella lamps
    2 30w lights
    2 40w lights
    Speedlite SB-900

    of these what do I need to bring and should I use any outside?
    Thanks for your help.

    Thread Moved ---> Read THIS. :)

    Setting up studio lights may not be the best option for a wedding, it seems a little too intrusive, but if you can do it, without it being in the way or being a distraction to the ceremony, then it might be worth a shot. If it's your first wedding, it might be better to just keep things simple. Depending on the light, you may need some sort of lighting, maybe just your SB-900 on or off camera.

    Once you are inside for the party, anything goes (well not really, but you know what I mean). You can keep it mobile with an on-camera flash and hopefully bounce it...or you could set up lights...or a combination. Do what you are comfortable with, a wedding really isn't the time or place to be trying out techniques for the first time.
