Using the 5D3 with the Speedlite 430EX original not the MkII
Aug 24, 2014

Hi All

I have the 430EX but have rarely had need to use it a need has arisen and as I now have my 5D3 would welcome any insight in addition to my self testing of how to get the best out of this combo for indoor informal portraiture?

This will be a family get together where I will be shooting singletons, couple and groups.  I have a Rogue flashbender and an older style Lastolite bouncer to spread the light as I have seen the room and the ceiling is very high and not white.............the wall are white up to approx. 10ft level and above that are darker cream coloured.   Though there are windows down one side the light is not that great!

TIA for any pointers and also any links to guides
