Hey guys,

I recently shot a family function with a Nikkor 55-200 (VR AF-S f/4-5.6G ED) with the help of a SB-700 Speedlight. Shooting at TTL for now on the flash, and auto on the camera, a D7000

When you say "auto on the camera", do you mean auto exposure mode and auto ISO? In that case you're in TTL-Bl and can get results the camera likes and you don't. Simply come out of the auto modes and see what gives you the results you're after.

Hi Mako- everything was AUTO. I was in auto on Cam and TTL on Flash.. It was my first function- didn't want to play around with settings too much.. In hindsight, I should have cheers!!
