Hi

I have been asked by a friend who sorts out events for charties if I would like to be part of the photography team for the event as he knows of my hobby of photography.

I have a 450D and the event is noon-10pm. My camera will do fine till 7pm but after we move indoors for the dub I'm worried my cam won't hold up.

This could be a big opportunity for me to get my foot in the door of the photography world.

If I need a better cam I can go exchange mine for any of the cams from 500D till up to the 7D budget wise.

Any advice?

I currently have three lenses:
Canon 50mm 1.8 STM
Canon 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 kit
Sigma 105mm 2.8 Macro

Most likely gonna have to go 1.8 or 2.8 most occasions with iso 400-800. I don't event want to touch 1600 really but light room should be able to remove some of the grain from the high iso images.

What sort of focal length should i be using for indoor stuff as i have a crop sensor so my 50mm has the field of few of 75mm, would my 18-55 be better. I prefer my STM as its sharper and lets in way more light but things can get a bit tight some time.

Go to a venue with similar lighting, distance, and movement.
Take all your lenses.
Take lots of pics.
Evaluate.

Well i'm getting there early so i can do that.

I will be keeping track of what light balance to use as the sun will be moving in and out of clouds but also i will have to work with tungsten and fluorescent light when i'm indoors.

Maybe i will try and go to the Camera Company store in Manchester and ask about an attachable flash, one i can direct toward my subject or in another directions so to bounce the light round the room but only on white walls.

Also i will be bringing my mono-pod just in case.
