    questions about a fitness/gym photoshoot

    I am doing a photoshoot for a fitness instructor at a gym and am looking for a few pointers
    I plan on using the 70-200(2.8) instead of the 24-70, does that make sense? I would like to be able to isolate the subject better, most likely using length between 80-120 depending on the amount of space. As far as lighting I only have a hotshoe flash and a wireless controller, I also have a home made reflector for the flash to soften the light(link).

    The idea is to play around with heights and have the flash at about 45 degrees to the subject, can I buy some inexpensive additions that will allow me to get better light.

    I would like to get shots close to this(good case)


    Thanks

    I'm no expert, so take my comments into consideration with that, but I want to get into shooting these types of images too. I guess my concern with using the 70-200 is do you have enough room? I would think with you need a lot of space with 70 being the shortest. They gym I go to, I think the best bet will be to use a 24-70 as that will get me closer and wide enough to capture the subject.

    Is it possible to get in prior (2 or 3 days) and do tests?

    edit: Thanks for the link to the flash reflector. Those pictures in the link have inspired me to step up to the flash game.

    Do you have a Expodisc, yet? I don't, but I hear they are the bees knees.

    My reflector acts as a white balance reference point

    Assuming an FX body, that would be my go-to lens.
