I'm setting up a large strobe in the corner of a room that will be very dark ( a party will be going on) I plan on setting up my 8x10 in a secluded spot, focusing about center room.
Heres what I gather, The strobe is intense, I'm shooting color, I don't mind some heavy blacks as long as there is sufficient detail but I'm not working with zone 3 here. I'm gonna use 400 speed nc and some 160 vc.
I figure that I'll simply throw it on bulb, hit the stobe and close the lense.
That being said I'm confused as to what I should be able to get away with as far as apperature. The camera will be close to the room and with the 300 I'd like to use 32 or 64 to maximize sweet spot and get the entire partyscape down.
I basically have never shot with lights let alone strobes, any advice or experience in similiar matters would be greaaaaatly appreciated. Don't wanna burn that pricey film.
