Are you sure you understand HSS? It's not just a matter of turning it on. You also have to use a high shutter speed to engage it.

I misunderstood you. I thought you were just suggesting that the HSS option being enabled in the camera would, by itself, make a difference.

Nope.

I've never used HSS with indoor flash for portrait. I only have ever used it outdoors, particularly when I needed help with bright light and turned to a faster shutter and some assistance from the flash.

Indeed, HSS is typically used for special purposes... but one of its 'side effects' is complete elimination of 'unwanted' light from the wireless controller, so I thought you would like to know.
