Hi all, and greetings to alll senior members.
A 35mm SLR user ( Min Dynax 7 ), I am new here and I hope to gain some knowledge here in photography using flash ( built in or flash gun ). I consider myself intermediate, and my weaknesses are in portraiture, and flash photograhy.
Largely I am for shooting in available light, or no light at all. I love lanscape - even if they're coined as cliche - but mostly I love night shots using long exposures on negs, or slides.
I have recently taken some group shots in an HDB apartment ( its a family group photo ) using a flash gun fired off the camer manually by hand, with the gun pointed at a wall to the side of group subject. Turns out a little too white washed in areas where subjects were closest to the wall.
I have compensated for the white painted walls by dialing up +2.0 stops, but still, it looks like I should have dialed up higher - like maybe +3.5. Since the flash was bounced from a wall more than 6 feet away - I wonder what gave ?
Any help or tips will be most appreciated.
