Men and women will be dressed in our cultural dresses, very colorful and bright clothing.I have one Pentax 540 flash and K-7. I was thinking of using continuous light for the shoot.Below are my concern. Please advise with how to proceed. I still have one week to arrange.

1.Shoot is kind of Family Portrait. Around 300 Families expected.

2.What backdrop to go with.

3. What kind of light setup to be used? I am thinking of continuous lighting setup

4.It will be group of around 5 to 6 person per family.
