Quick tips are often the best. So this one is quick.
When you are using TTL flash, and you want to know if you have enough power to do the shot, do this:
Put your flash into MANUAL mode (Press MODE until TTL is replaced by M) and ensure you are set to full power (100% or 1/1). Then take the photo. You should see an overexposed flash photo.
- If so, go back to TTL and carry on.
- But if not, you have to increase your ISO or decrease your aperture number. Then repeat.
And that’s all. Just one of those quick tips that can make all the difference over the holiday season.
