Urgent Help: event on Saturday

Hello all !

Next Saturday I will attend an important family event and plan to take some pictures.

I am an advanced amateur, shoot with an xt-2 plus 2 primes (18mmf2 and 35mmf2) and a Ef-20 fuji flash. In my flash I have a diffuser.

I would like your recommendations on setups for camera and flash.

Also, I noticed that when I use TTL (not TTL-Auto), pictures with the 35mm closer than 2 feet tends to be over exposed by 2 stops. All other are Ok.


1- On the flash, should I shoot Ttl or ttl-auto ?

2-which mettering mode should I use (center weighted,multi or average)?

3-which other camera setups should I use (speed appertude ans iso)? Should I go to "all auto"?

4-should I use diffuser, bounce the flash light  in the ceiling or both?

i shoot raw and plan to post process all pictures on Lightroom.

Photos are basically family (from groups to close ups).

Thanks in advance for your help.
