I've been wanting to see what settings (Camera and Flash settings) you guys have used for off camera flash in dark receptions. I am also curious as to setting up (do you have an assistant do set up or do you prefer yourself). By the way, for flash settings I'm mostly curious about manual settings. I'd like a general baseline setting for a dark reception (pretty big) that I can adjust up or down dependent on light conditions. My general theory is to start off with 1/16 - 1/32 on the off camera flashes and go up if I need more light. As for camera settings I'm thinking about starting at F 2.8-4, and shutter at 60-100, possibly lower if it's dark enough to drag the shutter. Is it possible to drag the shutter with off camera flashes in a really dark venue? Or is it better to drag the shutter with an on camera flash only? Do you guys recommend a higher aperture (5-9)? Do I need a higher aperture to get the nice starburst effect off the off camera flashes? My current set up: is an on camera SB900/w pocket wizard (I turn the sb900 on and off depending if I want fill flash or not + I use like the sb900 on camera incase I want to use the low light focus lamps or if I just want general TTL on camera bounce flash, or emergency CLS) and x2 sb600s (fired by pocket wizards) on nanos. I've also used Nikon CLS pretty often with good results (but I only feel comfortable using CLS in smaller venues where the IR signal can travel better), and have used the pocket wizards before in reception (but sparingly). I haven't run into a situation where I've really needed to use both my off camera flashes yet because of the D700's great low light ability, but I keep them around for insurance and want to use them more for creativity and consistency with lighting. I'm thinking I will need them also since I will be doing some pretty big venues later this year, some that don't have great lighting, or have lighting that casts an ugly color. Hope I haven't asked too many questions =). Thank you for your feedback ahead of time.
