    What gear do I need to do event photography in nightclubs?

    A good flash I assume? I have a Nikon D90.

    what else can you get if your going to be moving around the whole time. powerful flash and i would recommend figuring out the best settings on your camera before you start taking the photos. that way youre prepared.

    ...and a prime lens.
    When I go out and I i know it'll be dark I take my flashgun , 50mm 1.8 (very wide aperture - higher shutter speeds) and Sigma 10-20 4-5.6 (since it's wide and here works the length-speed rule - handheld always shoot at least 1/x seconds , where x is the focal length. Here it is 10mm so 1/10 s. gets enough light and the quality is ok)

    Settings? As I said, set it on Tv or Shutter speed priority (ok, i didn't say this), set the shutter speed to 1/(lens length) sec. and I guess ISO800-1600? WB - Fluorescent or Tungsten.

    I'm not a genius photographer so I can't guarantee great shots with my help, though.

    My Nikon came with the twin lens kit (18-55 and 55-200).

    Either of these would be ok?

    Leave the 55-200. Someone might confuse it for a can of Guinness.

    Maybe in a VERY well lit place, otherwise I'm going to say no. I use a Tamron 28-70 2.8 which does a pretty good job of getting some good shot of the band and crowd. I also use a SB-600.

    i did some shot of a band the other day, i was using my d90 with a 50mm 1.8 and a sb-600 + a large bounce card. i was happy with the result.

    the only thing is a 2.8 zoom lens would have been better.
    to get a full band shot, i had to move to the back of the place.
