Thread: What flash settings to use in wedding photography?

    Default What flash settings to use in wedding photography?

    I have a 450D and just bought a 430EXII flash. I have been shooting with my 450D and pretty good at it but when it comes to ext flash settings, I'm still confused. For wedding photography, esp. in a hall where there's no near walls around, what settings do I have to use? High speed sync?Slow sync? Zoom?Exposure comp?
    I never plan to buy a diffuser but will try to use a pc of paper to soften the light from flash.

    Any advice?

    Thanks

    If high ceilings, direct flash

    M mode
    1/50 to 1/60 sec
    f/5.6
    ISO400/640/800

    use that as a starting point, and adjust from there.

    i am contemplating to get EX430 II since its quite cheap at $410 at OP.. but thinking why not get 580EX II since its only $220 more @ $630...

    but the thing is that 580EX II is damn big, the size puts me off..
