A mom that I just did a PB session with emailed me again and asked if I could photograph her daughter's first birtday party. I thought it would've been in her home (nice bright walls , big windows) so i was excited for all the natural light i'd have to work with. She said it's at a hall in town and it's from 1-5pm. Now i'm freaked out. I don't know what the hall holds in terms of lighting, etc.(their website has no pics). My gear: 50D, speedlight, Tameron 28-75mm, kit lens 17-85mm, 50mm. I also have a tripod.
I asked her to give me a list of shots she MUST HAVE, i.e. certain family members, friends, details etc. But I don't want to botch this because of poor lighting. I can bump my ISO way up if I need to and I do plan on wearing a white shirt to help reflect some
So what MUST I take with me. Will shooting in manual freak me right out or should I play it safe and stay in Tv mode (a wedding photog. friend of mine suggested I shoot in Tv mode and keep my SS at 1/200 to avoid motion blur). should i take the tripod with me?
Appreciate any and ALL advice! :help1:
