Group Graduating Photo


Hey everyone
I'm the guy that has to take the group shot on June 13th. This will be a group shot of 34 graduating nurning students. I have a Canon EOS 10D, Canon EX550 flash, a good tripod, Two 10' light stands, 2 white translucent umbrellas as well as 3 smaller hot shoe flash units with slave sensors. The shoot will be indoors at around noon. The shoot will be in the foyer of an arts building at the college. The background will be dark wood panelling and behind me will be large windows, not letting in much light. Not sure if the umbrellas will reflect much of the small flash. Need help ! Any suggestions ?

  If you want to use all that, might as well put one stand/flash/sensor/umbrella to the left, one to the right, and use 550 on the hot shoe at just enough power to set those off.
Use a flight of stairs to make your rows of people. Or stand on the stairs and shoot down.
May be plain, but simple and easy.
