I bought a "single" Flash system this weekend and still trying to figure it out.
I bought the Prolite 300D. Its the first one in the web page:
I have a few questions:
1. F. Stop reading at 1 meter ISO 100
What does this mean?
2. I do not have a light meter. I understand it is possible to use the Camera as a light meter.
I have a Nikon D40 and a Nikon CP7900
Any suggestions on how to use my camera(s) as a light meter?
3. I have a single light. I tried to set it up and shot a few pictures.
If I use the flash on the light, all the pictures are completly white (I think over exposed would be the right word!! The subject/person can be viewed, however everything is all white)
If I do not use the flash, then the pictures come out just fine. I am just trying to play around a bit..
There is a small shop closeby where I stay. The photographer takes passport size pictures. His pictures are not "whited" out. I was wondering why my pictures are all "whited out"?
