Thanks for the great tips!!!! Ive been getting into wedding photography and really been having a hard time with lighting during the reception. As a newbie, what lighting system would you suggest other than the on camera speed flash, if i can't afford one such as what you used in the beginning of the video. I also find myself changing the settings a lot from shot to shot with my SB900, soI know I am doing something wrong. Any suggestions for me.

Hi, it's Chis from the video. Any on camera flash will do, and even your pop up flash can work. You don't need an expensive speed light. Actually the cheaper the better, you aren't using the flash for anything else but flashing. No intelligence, or TTL. I'd love to answer this question better. Can you contact us through our website?
