I have this weird issue when I'm shooting at the club where I work that I didn't have before... or was I just lucky the first 3 weekends?
The equipment is as follows: Canon XSi with off shoe cord connected to stroboframe flash bracket connected to canon 580EX II flash.
I have everything on manual... and I'm using a custom white balance with spot metering. Shooting jpegs because the club likes to upload the shots before the guests get home.
Just recently, I started getting these intermittent overexposed shots. Sometimes 4-5 in a row, especially if I do continuous mode. Every other shot I have is exposed just perfect, and then randomly I get the overexposed shots that seem to be almost white images. And I didn't shoot any differently than I did the other days, nor was it a different environment. I look at my flash after setting it to -2/3 power and it resets back to 0 every now and then for some reason... Which still doesn't explain the ridiculously overexposed near white images because at +0 it wouldn't overexpose to that magnitude. Do you think I may have accidentally enabled a setting where it would cause these intermittent overexposed shots somewhere?
