Need help with small wedding lighting
Jul 22, 2011

I normally do studio work. Now I have a small wedding outdoors on Sat. I shoot with Canon 5D mark2, 580 EX. Have Alien Bee strobes with power pack for portability.

My plan is to set up my camera for the ceremony with flash on camera with diffuser. I'm hoping in shade I can be at 5.6 and stay under the 1/200 sutter speed for flash sync. I'm thinking about ISO 400 I guess. Next, for family shots I could hook up my strobe and meter to a little under ambient light. Then for moving around the area and getting groom and bride shots just have my assistant hold the 580 off to the side in manual and have her adjust as needed. I have Pocket Wizards for transmitting and receiving. Does this sound likeit would work? I'm getting a little stressed.......:)
