I was actually in manual mode on the flash, I tried to set the flash on TTL and meter the picture but I would end up with a shutter speed of 4 seconds or more. With TTL I would need to used a tripod but as I stated all of these pictures were spontaneous. Bellow you can see the histogram of both pictures and if I am reading them correctly the exposure on both were dead on center. Anyone is welcome to correct me if I am wrong.
