I've been asked by my sister to take the casual shots the offical photographer wont be taking at my nephews wedding. I have a D700 and have always used a 24-70 2.8 for this type of photo shooting. In the past I have used Russ's suggestion of Manual 4f, speed 80 and ISO of 400 with the SB900 at 60 degree for a ceiling bounce. A lot of the photos seem as if they need more light. Would the SB800 have more power? I also have a Gary fong diffuser but not have used it that much in the past. would that help? or should I be using a higher ISO setting.
thanks in anticiption(:-)
