So I am wanting to get some good pics from the upcoming Rail Jam in Dallas tomorrow night. I have never done any action shooting at night and was hoping to get some suggestions. The area will be decently lit but I assume I'll need some extra light. I recently got a 580ex but was wondering if riders cringe on you putting a flash in their face when they are on a rail with concrete on either side?!
Here is what I have to work with:
Last year you could get as close as you wanted so I was thinking the 50 would give me some good shots. There is also a patio 15 feet from the rail so that is an option as well. Any tips on shooting angles, settings, use of my 580, etc. would be very helpful.
