Re: Advice Requested for Lighting in Banquet Room

You can bounce just fine off an 18' ceiling. You can bounce even better if it is an OCF on a 9' stand. While extra batteries are always a must, you will not being firing your flash at anything close to full power unless you intend to use ISO 100 and f/8, which I wouldn't recommend. IMHO, you need to determine if you want to gel the flash to match the ambient or if you don't want to so that the subject is one "color" and the background another. And you have to decide how much of the background you want visible. The more visible, the higher the ISO and slower the shutter. The less visible, the lower the ISO and/or faster the shutter.
