Hi I've been asked by my uncle to help his family take a family portrait in their house. I have already decided what lens to use.
The problem is I'm not sure how to do the lighting part. I have a Canon 580EX and a Canon 430EXII. I was initially planning to use a 60cm x 60cm softbox w my 430EXII from the right and mount my 580EX on my camera body as the Master flash.
After a little chat with Jon from ***********, he advised me to use two 'brollies', left and right instead of the softbox as it wouldn't be sufficient light for the family portrait.
I was then thinking of getting two white 'brollies' and two light stands and a flash trigger.I want to minimize cost which is why I'm here to ask for help. Should I just get a continuous light with a softbox? Or can I just get one 'brolly', would it be enough light?
Please advice, thanks in advance!
