A friend of mine asked me to photograph her wedding. Even though on-camera flash photography is not my forte, she insists she loves my style and wants me to do it. I agree. Usually, everything I shoot with strobes gets metered with a flash meter and sometimes I even take Polaroids to make sure the lighting is perfect. Needless to say, I'm one of those people who needs to take their time when shooting.

I have a Nikon F3 and my girlfriend has a Nikon SB-800 flash which I'll be using for the wedding. I've never messed with the TTL capabilities of my Nikon F3 and I was wondering if I used a flash like the Nikon SB-800, would I be able to set it on auto and let the flash do the work for me? I really don't even know how to ask this question and I'm hoping someone knows what I'm talking about and gives me some wisdom on this. I just want to be able to take shots without worrying about setting the aperature every time I recompose. It's bad enough that I have to manually focus everything.

Thanks in advance for any help,
