I have a question for fellow photographers.

I need recommendations on how to shoot in a particular scenario.

a few weeks from now, I have to photograph a wedding reception. Its going to be a fairly informal affair and I'm not a professional photographer so I don't have all kinds of fancy equipment.

The issue I am going to have is that the reception is going to be in a very large barn like structure. Its a very large rectangular room with extremely high ceilings. There are a few chandeliers in the room and other wall mounted lamps which I was told will be lit during the event.

Most receptions I've been to have been fairly dimly lit affairs and considering how large this space is I just know its not going to be well lit.

I'm going to be using a DSLR and I have an external flash which I can mount on top of the camera. Because of the very high ceilings and large overall space, I can forget about bouncing my flash off walls or the ceiling.



I have researched a few products which will enhance or modify my flash so I get a little bit of the soft lighting that I'm shooting for.

1. The Rogue Flash Bender - I can strap this to my flash and hopefully it will spread out the light from my flash a bit more than normal.

2. The Gary Fong Lightsphere - Again, it will go on top of my flash and hopefully, it gives me evenly distributed light around my subjects at least.

Any ideas or recommendations would be appreciated.

Note: I'm not looking to spend a lot of money to buy some expensive equipment since I'm not going to get paid for this activity, I'm strictly doing it as a favor to a friend. I'm willing to spend about 100-150 dollars or so if that can get me some type of equipment which will aid in lighting.

If it's not too late, do you have a rental place nearby? You could rent a lens and maybe an additional external flash that you could tether with the camera. They should also be able to advise on what is the best accessory for the flash.
