using an external flash
After many tips and advice from everyone (clubsnap that is) , I finally bought a Vivitar 285HV. A bit bulky, but very powerful. So powerful that my subjects are seeing stars after I took a photo with the flash. I have tried setting it a lower vari-power and boucing it off a ceiling...but the general complain is that it is too powerful.
Anyone having the same problem or is there some specify settings that I should use? I am using a Casio 2900.
Oh..is that a intro on how to use external flash guide I can read?
