I'm doing an outdoor shoot soon.
equipment 30D, 580ex II and cactus trigger
first I know the best is to get under the shade and use available light.
but if there is no shade, I'll be using my 580EX II
Here is what I understand so far.
meter the background to what I want.
then use flash for fill.
This is the method I'm going to do
1. meter the background @ 1/125 and find the aperature. (ex f/8)
2. dial the setting to camera in manual @ 1/250 and the aperature (f/8) to underexposed the background by 1 stop.
3. now this is what i'm still having trouble with.
should I have the flash at the aperature (f/8) (I do have L358 flash meter)[have the dome going in and pointed at the flash] or should I have the flash so the overall aperature is at f/8 [have the dome going out and pointed at the camera]?
What is the best percentage of flash vs ambient? 60%???
