    I have had my photography business for almost a year. All of my weddings have been outdoors and beautiful. however, this last weekend I shot a wedding in a dark church and had major shadows on the wall...20 ft. behind them. How can I prevent this from happening in the future?

    To do this type of portrait you really need to invest in some good portable light stands with reflectors. A single flash unit just won't cut it even if you try to bounce it.

    That's the concept, can't say how good these are though, there's no info on light output. Some choices
