The general rule is if the subject to flash distance is variable then use TTL.  If the subject to flash distance is fixed then use manual power control of the flash.

With TTL chimp a lot, expect to be using Flash Exposure Compensation a lot, and expect to do a lot of exposure modification in post processing.  TTL isn't anywhere near perfect but it does have its use.
