Re: Advice Requested for Lighting in Banquet Room

vwgn, your "flash on a stick held by an assistant" suggestion is essentially what renowned wedding photographer David Ziser does, and it obviously works out great for him. The flash is shot through a 43" umbrella for formals, and sans the umbrella for reception candids. I've shot hundreds of practice shots with a similar set-up, using both human and mannequin models to test different lighting set-ups, and the results are impressive. Having said all that, you answered my question regarding bouncing an on-camera flash off the ceiling and/or walls of a banquet room like the one shown in my original post.
