  • Thanks for that great advice! My daughter is now getting comfortable with taking pictures, so she's finally starting to pose and move around more. We started with indoor shots, but now we're doing ...
  • I wasn't! Thank you for that, I am always looking for new places to learn from.
  • I agree, it can get confusing. I find that using the optical trigger on Manual and medium output, allows me to trigger my off camera flash in S1 mode. It took some time for me to get it right but, ...
  • I completely agree. I didn't know that was power. I thought it was the closest shutter speed that needed to match the camera. I tried bumping it up, and you were right. It gave me more power. Got ...
  • That is actually a good idea. I was looking for something like this but I thought the camera needed a hotshoe in order for it to work. I am going to look into this. Maybe I can find something for ...
  • Got it! So then manual is the best option. Thanks. Ok perfect,  will do.
  • got it! I figured if I made my built in weak (medium or Min flash) the external would be able to dominate. Flash settings are: Mode: Auto or Manual Output: Min, Med, Max Shutter Sync: 1st curtain ...
  • Hmm, interesting. I read that I should do S1 for manual because the camera doesn't have TTL. I see. I've tried it before on S2 but sometimes it didn't flash. I'm going to try S2 again. I figured ...
  • Yes, I tried it but I also had the issue of the external flash not going off at times. Then I read or saw in a video that S1 is for built flash on manual mode and S2 for TTL with pre flash. Last I ...
  • Created discussion thread Flash in Slave Mode
    Hey! So unfortunately, my G7X II doesn't have a hot shoe. I have been using an external flash on a tripod and triggering it with the built in flash. With that said, I think I am doing something ...
  • ....also, instead of the corner, use the wall and not the door....the details in the door are not needed/distracting ??? Thanks. She insisted on that corner haha. I keep trying to pull her away. I ...
  • Thanks. The wall is actually like a beige/greyish tone. I took your advice and shot her against a navy wall. Came out lovely, little to no shadow. My issue now is getting the external flash in ...
  • I also have an external flash that I trigger with the built in. Manual flash is sometimes difficult. I'm missing TTL mode.
  • Did you ever figure this out? I too am wondering if it does TTL?
  • I absolutely agree. Simple and satisfactory is right up my alley. I just got caught up with shooting RAW because my old camera used to overexpose images and I's be stuck. I am definitely learning ...
  • Also, I know that a standard phone camera can easily do the job but I am more interested in working with cameras because I prefer the quality and experience over how convenient and fast it is. ...
  • Many times I find that I'm over thinking everything when it comes to this. I've been doing both too see the difference and practice. I'm going to work on that, to reduce the shadows. Unfortunately ...
  • I completely agree, but she's fixed on doing it home because she likes the plain background. When school is out, we'll definitely be 90% outdoors. Haha thanks :)
  • Created discussion thread G7X II My Raw Indoor Portrait
    Hello everyone, I previously posted about the "G7X II and Quality" and some people wanted to see a raw image vs an edited one. I am no pro, learning everyday, so editing is not perfect. My daughter ...
  • I was using my galaxy s7 but the camera was acting up. My only issue was that it doesn't have give me total control and catching a moving toddler was kind of difficult. The camera makes things ...
