Hi all, I recently got an off-shoe cable for my flash (thanks Paul) and I'm curious to discuss elements of exposure when using a set up like this. I plan on holding it in left hand, which allows me to focus manually even though the flash is in my hand, and of course exposing with the right hand. I'll be using a pretty basic Canon 155A speedlite on my Canon EF (FD body). It can be set on manual for a GN of 28 ft, or on 2 different AUTO settings with 2 aperture choices, determined by DOF preference and subject distance. Aperture will be manual, and let's assume dark interiors (that is, not fill flash outdoors... yet). What I'm wondering is the best modus operandi for this kind of shooting. Should I set it on manual and try to think in "GN mode", and can I rely on the auto-exposure eye of the flash anymore? Furthermore, what are some good exposure guidelines for bounce flash and the positioning of the flash within my reach. I've always fancied this kind of flash usage, and I think it holds the most promise for getting really unique and striking (re: good) lighting from a flash, and not that deer in the headlights look; more studio. Also, known work of shooters that use this technique would be cool to share. Bruce Gilden of course pops to mind. For me, I'm going to be in situations where careful determination of flash exposure is not an option. I want to be able to have a a mental understanding of how best to get in the ballpark of exposure.
