    Well I've been asked to do photos at the senior dance at my school, Now I don't usually do that type of photography, so I'm looking for any tips at all!|

    I'm doing shots of people arriving in their limos, cars etc. at the main entrance, as they get out the car, as they step onto the "red Carpet"

    Some advice please!

    I think lighting is going to be a key concern here. Do you know what ambient light you'll have?

    Oh, you're on the other side of the equator.
    I don't do too many portraits/wedding shots, but I'm pretty sure you're going to need to MacGyver something to give you more light.

    I gather from the TV series - he was always good at making things from what was lying around to help himself out in sticky situations :)

    It's a reference to an old TV show, starring Richard Dean Anderson (Guy from the SG1 series). The character was fairly clever, and could build damned near anything seemingly from baling wire, chewing gum and a piece of cardboard.

    Basically, if someone says you need to MacGyver it, they mean you'll need to rig something up from whatever you can find on hand.
