Hi there guys,sorry for the newbie question but i'm just very enthusiastic about photography and have tonnes of questions.Here one for the time being.For example,when i'm using a flash gun for bounce flash,lets say at a wedding and wish to capture the guests or couple doing their own thing and just enjoying the night,what iso do i use? And is it better if i use the M mode? Cheers

We can't tell you any magical figures or settings as there is no ONE SIZE fit all.

It all depends on the scene, how bright it is, how you want the effect, etc. If you're proficient at it, then go ahead with fully manual.

Else we normally stick to A priority and iTTL for the flash, note that I'm using Nikon terms. Iso setting depends on the amount of light available and effects needed.

I usually use at least ISO400 for indoors with moderate level of light. This is to capture some ambient light in addition to the flash.

It's good to use M mode. It will give you more control over the ambient lighting. The flash exposure will adjust itself by TTL. You can adjust the flash exposure separately by using flash exposure compensation.
