Flash help needed. For A99 and Metz 52AF-1
Jun 11, 2013

This is the first flash I have ever purchased. I always just got by with the little I did with the pop up flash for whatever camera I had. I just got the flash last night and put it on the A99 and tried to take some shots in the house. All I could get was a very week flash and pictures that where very under exposed. So rather then play around with too many settings I put it down and decided to ask for help.

This Friday I have been asked to take pictures at a weeding reception. They have a photographer and just want me to take a lot of random shots to add to what they are getting. So nothing critical but I would like to do a decent job. They used my shots for their wedding announcements, but they were outside, no flash needed. Thanks for any help.

What if any setting do I need to adjust to use the flesh?

Any suggestion would be helpful, I just have no idea how to use it.
