    Default Need advice on lights

    Hi, would like to ask your opinion, I need to cover a dinner in a restaurant setting, the last photo is a group photo on stage. The problem is the group will consist of 120 to 140 people.

    Can you recommend a suitable light source? Would a portable floodlight do the trick?

    And any tips on what to look out for?

    As mentioned already, you'd need more than one light source... and best if diffused evenly...
