Hi everyone.

Was looking for some advice on lens speeds for shooting people in a club/bar environment..

Should I am for as little flash help as possible with a fast lens or is lens speed less of an issue?

this is the kind of exposure i was after..

http://www.koosday.com/gallery/10151073463243837/

Current eqiupmient is Nikon D5100 with SB-600..kit kens (18-55 1:3.5-5.6)

Thanks.

Bounce the flash, you could also try using a flash diffuser if the bouncing does not work (high ceiling).

In that gallery, the photographer also use the "slow flash" technique (google that) to be able to freeze a moment during a longer exposure in a dark environment.
