At the end of the month I'll be in Banff for work, and during that time, I will have to make some headshots portraits of a dozen people. The big thing is obviously how to light for it because we won't have the opportunity to shoot them in natural light. It doesn't need to be Hollywood glamour; but it shouldn't be stark flash in your face, because we're going to use these photos for a little bit of PR afterwards. I'm travelling by plane, and so not really eager to rent a strobe with a softbox. So here's what I thought I would do: Using 35mm 400 film, I would use my Sunpak 383 (GN at 100 iso of 130) and a large sheet of foam core (that I'll get over there) held on a stand. I would use the foamcore sheet as a giant bounce card, and take the portrait with a 50mm lens to be close enough. I will rent a flash meter this week (and for Banff as well) and start making tests, but I was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience and advices as well. I'm not sure yet of where to position the foam core: I thought that I could put it a bit behind and above me, and use the swivel head of my Sunpak to turn the light towards it, leaving the flash on the camera (one less stand needed). I will leave the camera on a tripod, in order not to fuddle with the setup. The other option I was thinking was to put the foamcore sheet horizontally between me and the subject, as an adjustable ceiling, and bounce the flash at 45 degrees.
