Hey guys,

Im investing in a flash soon. 580exII to be exact.

I attend alot of car meets and i find myself githing shadows, cars half parked under trees, and overall poor light alot of the time. To use this flash a fill flash what are some tips and tricks you guys use?

Should i leave the flash on auto and just shoot as normal and let it fill? or play around with it manually?

Cheers

I would play around with it manually. Maybe get a bracket and sync cord to get it off the hotshoe? That way you can move it around and put the light exactly where you want it.

I like the idea of putting a flash on a monopod for the quick and dirty off camera flash. Lets you put the light more or less where you want it without the fear of someone knocking your flash/stand over. And you avoid direct flash that way.
