    allright so i've got a family friend who wants me to shoot her daughters graduation party on the 8th of june.

    All i've got is the 17-55 Canon. Should i use this excuse to invest in another lens or learn with what I have. I was thinking of going wide or the 50 1.4.

    This by no means is a professional shoot, just a favor for her with little to no expectations.

    17-55 is fine, but get a flash

    small rooms bounce flash. dont be afraid to open up the iso to get higher apertures.

    Just make sure the ceilings/walls are white if you do this.

    Would you gel to be the same color as the ceiling? Couldn't you fix this in post?
