I've been asked to take photos for a launch of a new range of jewellery at a VIP promotional event at a 5-star hotel.
The photography basically involves photographing company reps and displays, and then some group shots of the actual event (up to 50 people).
I'm extremely excited to be asked, but have not had any experience with this type of event. Could anyone offer any tips or advice for photography, including best types of shots to take, best lenses, how to best use flash etc.
I have a 10-22mm, 50mm prime, 100mm macro, and an 18-200mm (which I generally avoid using for anything professional unless necessary). Also have a 580EX II Speedlight, flash diffuser, plus a remote flash/umbrella setup, reflectors, etc.
I doubt I'll be able to set up the umbrella or any peripheries unless I have a specific area dedicated for VIP shots, but I presume I'll generally be roaming the room.
Looking for any advice as a relative newcomer to event photography. Anything at all.
