Re: Exposures all over the place?? HELP!!

It sounds like you don't have your speed light set to manual ( and possibly the camera as well). And at that some cameras emit a pre flash with dedicated speed lights, if yours does then you can set it so the AE button will do the preflash after focus. Push the button and the pre flash goes off at that focus distance, then when the main flash fires the studio lights will be in correct sync.

Simpler than it sounds. However even so, in reality you can't beat radio triggers.
