I'm planning for my baby girl's first birthday & it will definitely be an indoor event.
Being indoor simply means that lighting is not that favorable for photography (correct me if I'm wrong). I could only think of 2 options available for better photos
1) Use faster lens - I can loan 50mm f/1.4G from a friend.
2) Use flash - I can get hold of a SB900.
I personally prefer the 2nd option as I feel more comfortable working with 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for such an event. What do you guys think?
I'm not familiar with flash photography (usually do shooting outdoors & only use built-in flash once in the blue moon). Would very much appreciate your valuable advise, especially shooting infant & other young babies using flash.
Do I put on the diffuser dome permanently, set the flash angle at 45% (or other angle) or use the white bouncer on the flash unit? Sorry for all these silly questions. I have never used an external flash before .
Thanks in advance.
