Sorry, v & b are neighbors.
I can't imagine hassling with an orbis while shooting a wedding, guess your ninja skills are better than mine. Or you are trying to get people to buy a bunch of expensive modifiers :)
You're recommending an Orvis for shooting a wedding?? Have you ever shot a wedding? LOL
Sure I have. And I've used the Orbis to achieve some really wonderful results too.
Okay try this. I'm not sure what system you have, but I use Canon. So what I typically do is keep the Orbis mounted on my 580 EX Ii or 430 EX II (in one hand), keep a Gorillapod wrapped around my bicep, and have my 7D with a 35mm F/1.4 in the other hand. If I want to light a bunch of people, then I quickly mount the gorillapod and Orbis combo in a spot to ensure that everyone will be evenly illuminated. I'm also usually shooting at 1/60th of a second for sharpness and to balance the ambient light, and the ISOs are usually set to around 400-800.
Then depending on how far the subject are, I'm modifying the exposure compensation of the E-TTL on the flash. Plus, I'm posing everyone in fun and unique ways.
Once again, remember it doesn't need to be used as a ring flash. It can also be a softbox, and very good one at that. I'd hardly call myself a ninja, though my nickname here is Batman ;)
I hope this helps man, let me know if I'm not explaining myself enough and I'll try to do so.
