    There was some bros asking why do I use mostly M instead of A/S/P, for answer is that it offered me the most control of my shots during a photo shoot rather than leaving the camera to decided for me. Personally, I found this method work well with my Canon 18-200mm IS lens.
    Yeah go Manual for everything. Full control over cam and flash. Learn more along the way also
    I would usually off my flash and meter my background/subject depending on situation, then adjust accordingly, then on flash, shoot again, then adjust flash setting either FEV or manual.

    Understanding White Balance - you won't find exposure related information

    Each mode will give you different results. Try experimenting with your camera settings. Personally I prefer center-weighted and matrix.
