Don’t know why I decided to mess around with my flash this evening, but I am glad I did as I finally twigged how to get the TTL working with the extension cable. Seems there is a specific order of putting the cable on the flash, on the camera and when to switch each on. Bloody fiddly thing, the times I did manage to get TTL to work over the last three years must have been by luck.
However, I didn’t even used TTL in the end as I am so used to setting it all manually when I do use it and I wanted to darken the background completely.
I very rarely use a flash, much preferring natural light, but since I have restarted Blipping I am always having to use a higher ISO and a wide open lens. When I picked it up I thought this would be good way to get around that (and have a much-overdue play with the flash). I might get to know what I am doing one day if I keep it up!
Not sure what I am going to so with this type of effect yet, but I am happy with my visual jotting for the evening. It’s a look I like.
Happy Tuesday everyone.
