I intend to shoot 1 flash off camera in total darkness like this http://www.flickr.com/photos/captain...7600670209319/
I am using film camera.
1) Nikon F60
3) 50mm F1.4
(A) Camera Aperture F1.4, Camera and Flash ISO100
Let's say, i set aperture F1.4 and shutter speed 1/60 (focal length). I use manual mode and centre weighted metering(only the face). The metering indicates that it is 5 stops less from the middle(18% grey). Can I adjust the flash aperture to F8(subject within flash distance) to compensate for the 5 stops. Will this work?
(B) Camera and Flash Aperture F1.4, Camera ISO100 and Flash ISO 3200
The meter shows 5 stops below middle (18% grey). Will increase in flash ISO from 100 to 3200 compensate for the 5 stops?
Please advise me. Thank you.
