Re: Umbrella/Speedlite Setup for Wedding Group shots in Church Sanctuary?

Using your Speedlights, bouncing out of umbrellas, will put a lot of strain on them.  Until you get enough money to get decent monoblocs to handle the umbrellas, you should stick to using the speedlight on stands, aimed directly toward the subject.

The reason that I say this is that it would cost you more and take you longer to get the better lighting setup if you have to pay for repairs on both speedlight because you burned them out.
