multiple off-camera flash exposure

Oh, and if you think automated metering gives you fits now, try it with a couple of off-camera flashes and one on-camera flash in TTL mode. Bring out the light meter (the handheld one) and set at least those off-camera flashes at constant power if you want to get anything that resembles consistent and predictable.

I have tried multiple off camera flash in TTL and I agree it's usually inaccurate and unpredictable. I just adjust after the first shot. As for setting the off-camera flash in manual mode, again that would work in a studio setting or setup shot and I indeed do that, but in a run and gun kind of situation, impossible for me.
