    Smile Wedding - to shot candid shots of guest....

    Hi everyone, my friend has asked me to stand in to help take candid shots of her guests , during her wedding next week.

    I currently have a 35mm prime f1.8, 18-55mm kit nikon and a 28-70 f2.8 sigma.

    I'm planning to use my 35mm most of the time i guess, cause of low light and bring along the 28-70 sigma ( old lens ) just in case.

    Any other issues or gear i should take note of ? or bring along ?

    For candids, perhaps a longer focal length would be more suitable. 50mm on DX quite good
    Exploring! :)

    you definitely need a flash unless you go wide aperture - something like f1.2, but chances are you will blow your ISO too.

    if you really need a diffuser, just get a simple pop-up one will do.

    still, it will be better to have an external flash because you can direct the flash head to bounce the light off different surfaces to create diffused light for the subject.

    Get a pop-up flash diffuser, which can be attached to your hotshoe.
