Re: Lighting a Fashion Show Runway

Best practice is that high quality fashion shows are lit with theatre lighting evenly across the whole runway. This allows you to shoot without flash and gives you a much faster frame rate. If you want to augment your flash, I would add an external battery pack to decrease your recycle time and give you a faster frame rate. An external flash that uses eTTL to adjust to the lighting intensity at whatever position on the runway should work much better than studio strobes that can't adjust intensity.
