Hi there ,i'm new to CS
Just starned photography with a 450D kit and Macro/WC 0.45 converter .
Considering the tamron 17-50 f/2.8 or canon ef 17-85 f/4-5.6 or the sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4
as an upgrade from the kit lens however I'm considering the flash first .
I've noticed my shots are very dark whenever i'm shooting night without flash using my kit lens and I wanna know how can I get good shots woitout getting reflection or uneven leght distribution .
I know ppl use diffusers and omni bounce however wouldn't it affect the camera's guide no calculations and also what is TTL OR ETTL AND all those terms ?
I searched google and the definitions are so difficult to understand and i searched strobist.bs.com however I dont really understand ..What is TTL ?GN? all that ..
Furthermore ,I'd love to go shooting with a few bros from CS however I don't really like those akward moments between kakis who i barely know due to the age gap and skill barriers
BTW im 14 going to 15 .
Thanks so much bros for your comments.
