"Flash or Strob....That is the Question"



I will be shooting a wedding in April in Texas. The wedding takes place starting at 7:00pm. The wedding party be using christmas lights and (sparkles). They want to make sure these lights show up great. I have Ranger RX, Ranger Quadra, SB910s for lights to choose from. I shoot with D3S and D800E.

It should get dark about 7:30 so the lights should show up great.

I have softboxes, and Unbrellas for light modifiers.

The question is how cam I maxamize the picture and effects so the lights sparkle and pop. What do I use? Strobe or Flash.

What kind of settings, (A) (S) (ISO). ?


Any help???

Thanks for helping....I need to do some test shots, I have time..

Tom
