    Hi dude,

    You can rent a f2.8 lens and flash for the event, shouldn't cost you much for a day. You can play around the settings at home before you go for the event, that would help!

    Good luck with your shoot.

    I suppose it would be mostly group shots, so just use built in flash with increase FEV + diffuser might do the job... But make sure the distribution of people will not be too wide as your built in flash won't cover a wide area (light will fall off at edges). And beware of your kit lens hood casting shadow on your photo if you are zooming.

    Enjoy the shooting
    hi szeping, thanks for the advice, most probably I would skip the hood, pardon me, what's a diffuser?

    You are welcome.

    From wikipedia, a diffuser is any device that diffuses or spreads out or scatters light in some manner, to give soft light.

    In this case, you can put some traslucent materials in front of the flash to create a softer and more scattered light.

    TS,
    Instead of trying to comprehend what everyone is speaking... why dont you put to P mode and shoot with flash.

    Do not even attempt to bounce the flash. And do not shoot raw.
    This way, you are at least assured of some pics.

    I can understand the reason not to bounce the flash because you can't tilt the built-in flash to bounce on ceiling or other materials. But ermm... care to enlighten me, why not to shoot RAW for assurance?

    I'm not RAW lover as I seldom shoot in RAW, but maybe you can help TS on this statement

    hmmm, ya... curious too.
    Besides requiring more steps in the process workflow (hence my laziness to use RAW as well), I don't see any disadvantage to shooting in RAW.
    Why is it discouraged?
    Exploring! :)
