Hi guys.... so did my first engagement session Sunday. Along with that it was my 2nd session using my new Xplor.
I did have a couple questions about some techniques I still dont fully have 100% grasp of.
1. First I tried a pic or two in TTL, just to test exposure. I had hands free unit in a softbox, wiht Xplor 600 in bag over shoulder. Even though TTL is what it is, and is not 100%, the static shots came out dark? Would it potentially be becuase I was paying more attention to my aperture (2.8) and perhaps sometimes wasnt zeroing out my in camera meter? Irealized today that I think I was chimping first once and then knowing what adjustment i needed to make then it would turn out... if I set my aperture, will TTL find the exposure or was it either too far away? In which case i would think it would go from whatever power setting down to 1/1 in order to gain proper exposure.... will TTL stop at a certain power setting or would it, in theory, go to 1/1?
2. Some shots I wanted to get a nice light and airy feel and instead ended up going into HSS and eve nthough the client liked the look, I was hoping to end up with a different look. I know its more aperture and iso dependent, but ideally I would just want to set my camera settings to achieve the light and airy look and thene have my Xplor there to add fill and catch lights... I wish I could take the HSS exposre and still adjust in post to give it a airy feel, but too many hihglights would be blown.
