Available for use.. Tripod for camera, 430EX Sunpak 383 2 umbrellas 43" reflector (circular) flash bracket for camera ebay flash triggers that dont work reliably optical triggers that are fidgety in large rooms my wife (to hold things) The scenario: Kindergarten and 1st Graders in a gym. high ceiling, typical gym lighting. They want a team picture of all of them, and a portrait of each individual kid. My Plans (critique please!): Use my 17-85 IS on tripod. Flash bracket holding my 430EX up high. 430EX pointed BACKWARDS shooting at 43" circular reflector (my wife holding it) Now I have an enormous source of light, which should help with shadows. I should have enough time in between kids to let my flash charge up, so really it should be ok to crank my flash up high if needed to compensate for the small max aperture of my lens. (In return, the small aperture of my lens will compensate for my terrible focusing accuracy ) What do you think? With the given equip, what would you use? I also have a 24mm 1.8, a 50mm 1.8, and a 70-200mm 2.8 that I can use if needed, but assumed 17-85 is best... Ideas?
