Help! need to photograph Choir of 65 men


Prominent Member
Hello everyone,

I have just been commissioned to photograph a Male voice choir at there Gala concert in September.

I have be given only 20-30 mins before the concert begins.

If the weather is ok, I maybe ok at 6pm in September to take them ouside, however if not, then It will need to be indoors.

Now I do have some stobes, but nothing that would ligth up 65+ people:eek:

One idea, would be to buy some of those B&Q floods and point them up at the white ceiling, then correct the WB in Ps after?

Or would you not bother using extra light and go with what the hall lights only?

Any ideas? anyone done this type of shot before?

Best of luck with that one!!!
I would prey for good weather for an outdoor shoot, and still use the strobes.
Failing that hire the lighting kit you need.

you sure you cant light up 65 people with a few strobes? i wouldnt of thought it to be that hard.

I don't think you can't, I just do not think I can do it with the strobes I have.

I wonder how much it would be to hire some? anyone got any recomendations for stobe hire?
