Re: Lighting a Fashion Show Runway

From a level position to the runway, and directly head on, I would use a 70-200 f2.8 shot wide open so that flash probably isn't required and it will nicely isolate your subject and blur any background or foreground in the shot.

That being said, I do think it would be nice to have maybe one softbox set up high facing down on the end of the runway, just to capture the 'pose'. Though I don't know how you set it up so that it didn't interfere with the show itself. The on camera flash, while filling in shadows, needs to be dialed down so that you can't tell you used a flash, imho. Maybe you can try this during a dress rehersal?
