Hi everyone, I am hoping someone can help me. I am fairly new to digital photography and have an important event coming up in a couple of days, that I want to record.
My wife is being honored at a dinner gala as one of Canada's top school principals and I want to record the event. As this is a one time event I only have one chance, so I am hoping some of you with experience in indoor events may be able to help.
All I know about the location is it will be a hotel banquet room, but I don't know how big or how it is lit. I don't know how far I will be from the podium for photographing my wife getting the award. What settings would be a best quess for this situation.
I have a Nikon D90 camera and a 18-200mm 3.5-5.6 DX lens. I know that a flash would be out of the question as it would interupt others at the gala, but may be able to use the bilt in flash.
Basically I want your opinion on ISO, aperature or shutter priority or manual, what white balance, etc..... Also, should i shoot in jpeg or raw or jpeg and raw? I need help as I've never done indoor photography before.
thanks in advance
