"Manual" flash (noob question)
Jul 11, 2012

Hi all;

I'm thinking of buying a pair of Nikon Sb-700's for house interiors. This would likely allow me to use the Commander mode of my Nikon to set exposure levels 'automatically'.

However, if I purchase a pair of off-brand flash units, how do you use them? All I can visualize is setting the flashes, taking a picture for result, re-adjusting the flashes , etc.

Is this what people do? I will never be shooting in a 'studio' environment with known lighting levels, so that is not at issue.

Thanks for all thoughts.

Craig
