Hi,
I am going to be shooting a fashion show. The models are breast cancer survivors and instead of them walking on a cat walk, they will be on individual platforms. The platforms are about 2' tall. The room will be dimly lit with spot lights on the models. I'm not sure if the spot lights will be gelled or not. I'll find that out when I go and check out the space the day of the event. My question, should I use spot or center weight metering on the model's faces? I don't want to blow out their faces. I have SB-900's, Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 lens, and Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 lens. I'll also be shooting in RAW.
The client does not care whether I shoot in portrait mode, or, in landscape mode. In other words, they don't care if I shoot full body, or tight.
Any suggestions are helpful because the last time I shot a runway show was when I was still shooting film.
Thanks.

Cheryl
