    Default Urgent: Need basic knowlegde on flashes

    need to shoot using flash later.

    e.g Aperutre mode @ 1/60, f8:

    in order to have softer flash, should i compensate -0.7 or +0.7 ????

    u should bounce and not play with ev, ev only do the over & under exposure... nothing in regards to softness of the shadow (if u are talking about shadows)

    the ceiling is too high for bounce.

    That's right, but if your flash is going to be a major source of illumination and close to your subject, it's only going to give you muddy colours for underexposure.
