As above, I need advices and opinions from you guys for me regarding using a studio for shoot.
Basically, I will be renting a studio for shooting my parents wedding anniversary. They agreed on allowing me to help them conduct the shoot and it is also planned for me to learn and experience more and just for the fun of it. Since this is an all family thing and my parents would not mind mistakes etc from me as well. It will be nothing much too stressful or serious, more for me to learn and hopefully be able to take good pictures of them for their anniversary.
This would be my first time exposed to studio equipments and using the studio itself. So I seek your honest and humble opinions on what I should take note etc. On average, I roughly understand the rates of renting a studio /hr already. Therefore, personally I feel that for me as a first-timer, what I will need to take note of is basically the following:
1. How to use the equipments in the studio and position them well
2. Planning of how I want the shoot to be conducted.
3. Understand the uses and functions of using the lighting available from the studio to create different kind of outcome.
What more do I need to take note?
Currently my set-up would be Sony Alpha A230, 16-55mm kit lens, 55-200mm kit lens & 50mm F1.8 Prime. (Most probably I will be using the 55-200 most often if I am not wrong). [Before the shoot, most likely I should get my HVL-42AM flash]
Which leads me to this question:
-Would my current setup be enough? (Assuming I get my external flash by then)
Of course, even though this would mainly be for me to learn and venture more into the world of photography, I really hope to be able to make the shoot a success and take good pictures of my parents anniversary. So feel free to express your honest & humble opinions and advices.
