I will be shooting an indoor event here in Saudi Arabia tomorrow evening. I say "indoor" as it will be inside large Bedouin style tents and most likely under flourescent light and oil lamps with very colorful walls and flooring.

My original plan was to use my 28-70 2.8 along with the SB800 and a Dem flip it for bounce/fill, shooting in P mode (manual set white balance) with a modified Velvia picture control setting (a sharper version) at a capped ISO 0f 3200.

I do not have an off-camera bracket. I am re-thinking the on camera flash idea and might use the 800 in commander mode to fire a hand-held 600. I do not like the idea of using the on-board flash simply for the fact that it may get hung up on something and damamged.

I have available my D700, 28-70, 80-200, 24 and 28 2.8s and a 50 1.8.

This will be a very crowded event mixed with westerners and local nationals so I will need to respect local customs at certain times.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Mark
