I have a question about shooting with my flash while using manual mode on my camera. When I try to shoot in low light situation with the flash on, i'm not given a higher shutter speed to give a nice exposure. When i take pictures, i always either underexpose or overexpose my pictures by +1 or -1. When i try to take a picture so i dont get any motion blur with my flash in a low light situation, im given a really low shutter speed which i am not looking for. Could anyone care to explain to me how i can use flash and manual mode on my camera effectively. I also have a lightsphere if that would help but i heard from here to some it may or may not work. I have yet to figure out the real difference between using it or not. Thanks!

Ohh. So how would i know when it is at a correct exposure? Is it just to tweak the shutter speed little by little and alot of trial and error?
