I am manually adjusting the ISO. The only lights in the room are ceiling track lights and a few ceiling pot lights. I have to handhold the D800 ( a special gift for me) because I am trying to photograph active children . I guess I could keep raising the ISO , but do I then have to worry about introducing too much noise? Is it really necessary to get a zero camera meter reading, using manual exposure mode, when you will be using TTL flash?

Thank you so much for responding. I really appreciate it.
