Anybody used perimeter lighting before?
Has anyone used the technique of perimeter lighting in events or weddings before?
This is the technique of putting one or more slaved flashes to illuminate the background. You can use soft or harsh lighting, depends on your effect. Best if you have an assistant, but i intend to use mine on a litestand.
Will be using Nikon speedlites in CLS mode, so i can control whether or not i want it to kick into action, and the fill level from the master flash (held by me). Simple slave flashes will also do (though i don't know how you'd deal with other p&s cams setting off your optical slaves, IR wireless will be better), depends on your setup. I just need comments on what to take note of etc......
