    Underestimated the power of the light....I tot -ev of flash = something like -1 stop of light in exposure triangle...seems like it's much more in certain situations esp in dark environments.

    The only time I get to use my flash now is during some gatherings or some events etc.

    The shutter speed will only affect the ambient light. Adjusting shutter speed too low u will get blur pics. If u adjust aperture it will affect the DOF and the lighting on the subject.

    If u really want to light up a subject + the ambinrt light, chances are u will be using a slow shutter speed and this requires a tripod to prevent blur pics.
