Saturday, we were headed into the city to pick up a tshirt and cd I won off the radio...NERD....I know! On our way there, Randall announces that we are going to get my b-day present. As you know, I posted a while back asking for advice on what to get with $150. Well, I never decided b/c he said I could wait until taxes and get a speedlight.
Turns out, he had it planned that we were going to Best Buy and picking up a speedlight! I was so nervous b/c I know NOTHING about speedlights. I picked up the SB-600. It's for my birthday! He's so sweet. We really didn't have the money, but he knew that I have wanted it for a while. I want to be able to take better photos inside. That's the main reason. We have CRAPPY natural light in my house, and I am tired of taking photos inside on auto.
I haven't read the manual very well b/c there is a lot of info in there. Any websites/books for advice? These are a few I have taken. I love it b/c it looks sooooooo much better than auto! Even though I know I am not doing it correctly! These are just snaps...no need for cc, but I would like cc on exposure...
Oh, how in the world do you meter for these things? I can't go above a shutter speed of 1/200. Why is that? It was on 1/4 power.
