So its my mother in law's 75th birthday next month and I got tagged as the resident photographer to take the pictures. The event will take place in a decent sized banquet hall with fairly high ceilings (I think the ceilings were white). My wife wants to setup a dedicated area, like the cruise lines do, to take the pics as the family members come in. I have a 2 umbrella flash setup that I can bring but Im not sure if I even need it. The banquet hall is pretty dark so if I dont go umbrellas I'll have to bounce it off the ceiling with some kind of diffuser. If I do go with the umbrellas, should I just go with 45 deg angles for both or is there something better. Just looking for any ideas here. Thanks.
