Making a little diagram of the light-level zones might be helpful in that respect.
I can only shoot at the last full dress rehearsal just before the main event and not at the actual event. Therefore no room for error!
The good thing about this is I have the freedom to move around and shoot from any location, as long as I'm not on the stage.
Thank you very much for your thoughts and input. Most appreciated.
Kind regards,
