Any Flash experts here?
Apr 15, 2014

I have not really used flash since I had an  F5 and SB80x and am a bit lost in the digital flash world.

Now using a D800e and SB900 and I want to be able to add a little catch-light and definition to bird images. What I want to do is use manual exposure and auto ISO and for the flash to not impact the overall exposure and for it to operate at all shutter speeds (via FP, the 800e allows flash sync at all shutter speeds).  I just want to be able to maintain a constant ratio of flash light to ambient. I have tried all the various  settings I can think of but I cannot separate flash and ambient exposure. Any ideas on this or any bird shooters that can share their flash settings with this combo?

Many thanks.
