I'm a wedding photographer working with a Canon 5D Mark II. Previously when photographing weddings, I had been using my Speedlite (600ex-rt) on my camera (ETTL). I'd really like to start learning off camera flash, as well as manual flash. I was just wondering what type of set-ups you might recommend for wedding receptions.
I have heard good things about PocketWizards, but I'm a little overwhelmed by the basics. When you use a PocketWizard on your camera, are you strictly relying on the OCF for lighting (plus ambient lighting), or are you also attaching another Speedlite to your camera with some sort of flash bracket?
Do you typically set up one OCF or two (I know that's probably more of a stylistic question)? I am also confused by where to position them in most circumstances. Two on either side of the DJ or at opposite ends of the room?
Any equipment recommendations would be incredibly helpful so I can start practicing. I really appreciate the feedback!
