Wedding advice
Dec 17, 2011

Hi,

I am 20 and just scored my first wedding gig and need some advice about what flash unit to get. I recently graduated from a point and shoot to a DSLR and a 28-300 zoom which should cover the range. I need something that has a lot of range and ideally a rechargeable battery pack as I am expecting to need to shoot hundreds of shots with a large wedding party both in the church and at the reception with about 300-350 guests.

I’ll be making a pretty good profit on this job - I am getting about $2500 for the shoot so I can afford to splurge on a good flash unit. I also need a good book on how to use flash; up to now I’ve only done natural light work.

I am not too worried about not having shot a wedding before – I’ve seen quite a few and I think I have this one bagged – how hard could it be?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
