when in M mode, i can set the aperture to my desire setting, and shutter speed to 1/200. when i half tab, no doubt the exposure shown on the screen is -2, but the flash will fire off, and the pic looks good.
so can i say that, if i am using flash, i can just go ahead and set the aperture and shutter, and the 580exII will calculate and adjust the amount of light to balance my exposure?
blazer_workz has a good point about the background though. If the background is far away, it'll take a little experimenting. If the subject and the background are at close to the same light level, the subject better be standing quite still.

Bouncing flash off ceiling/wall/reflector has 2 purpose:
1. Diffused and softer light
2. Light comes from different direction which gives subject some form of dimension instead of firing head on which makes lighting very flat
