Setting up lights and cords in crowded bar could be a hazard.

Any suggestions?

The place has 7 bars and they want pics of all with patrons inside during busy hours (7pm-9pm) for their web site.

I'll confess I am not experienced with indoor lighting of interiors. What would you suggest I do. Using Canon 5D, 24-70 2.8 lense or could possibly use another lense.

They would like to showcase their interior lighting.

I do shoots in bars and restaurants all the time and use just my SB-800 speedlight. The trick is to drag your shutter enough to pull in all the cool ambient light, then use your flash to light up the people ... and balance the two light sources for a nice pic. Since the pictures are going to be used on a website, you have much more lattitude to use a higher ISO. Using too many strobes will usually kill the ambient feel of the bar, but if you feel the need to use a strobe, hook it up to a portable power supply (like a Vagabond) and have an assistant hold the light stand.

Good luck,

Yup, shoe flash(es) and radios.



Also CYA on the legal end and make sure the bar has a posting at the entry that patrons may be photographed.
