I have a flash. A manual Yongnuo 560-II. It's good for the slow portrait shoots, when you have time to set up, however, I feel that I'm missing out on decent lighting by not using it out on photojourno jobs.
A lot of my peers are using on camera flash and when you're starting out they tell you that direct flash is a no no. I know that it must be some sort of fill flash using TTL and I think it would be cool to have HSS too.
I'm looking to try and get a TTL/HSS flash, however, where to start is a nightmare. I don't want to sound like I know what I'm talking about so I'm open to suggestions.
My understanding of TTL is that based on the meter reading it fires the flash to raise the exposure. HSS seems to allow you to use higher shutter speeds, however, I'm more interested in a nice helping of artificial light on dull days or indoors.
Cheers for the advice in advance.
