I am aware that there are a few wedding threads on what type of lens to bring and so on. I did read and compile a checklist.
But still require your help in answering my doubts below. I am kind of stress up with the request, which will take place tomorrow.
Allow me to share what happen, I was told to help out my spouse friend to cover for a few hours before her actual photographer arrive.
The friend wedding is suppose to commence in the wee hours before sun rise, due to her constraint, the photographer will only be arriving 2 hours after her preparation for gate crash. I did mention that even thou I have been shooting, but it has been mostly on landscape/cityscape but never a wedding.
I am also require to play as a back-up photographer throughout the day as well.
With the equipments I have, I am highly aware that during indoor situation eg: marching in. I will be facing difficulties due to the lack of an external flash.
I am currently using the below setup:
Canon 550D + grip
Tamron 17-50mm f2.8
canon 50mm f1.8
canon 18-135mm kit lens
1) indoor low light: shall i be using 17-50 f2.8 + iso 1600 or 3200 but there will likely be noises.
or 50mm f1.8 but no flexibility of width. Only way of zooming will be my feet. Are there sufficient time during marching in?
2) flash: I do understand that direct flash will be harsh, is it better to avoid?
