Hi everyone, got stumped today trying to figure something out. Was taking some photos of knives a friend of mine made so he could submit them for a magazine. I used my sb700 on camera in ttl mode, which I see that you can only go ttl if you are in spot metering,,,don't know why that is. But anyway, I bounced the flash upward and used a piece of white foam board so the lighting looked better. But then I was not getting as much light on the blade itself, so I got out my sb600 to use as a little bit of fill. When I sat it on the table, I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to set it up. So I set my 700 in master mode and my 600 to remote mode, but I couldn't get it to flash. I finally ended up just going back to using my 700 in ttl. I am confused as to what mode everything should be in ...I used to only have the sb600 and I would control that off camera, simply by using my commander mode in camera, set the pop up flash to -- and the the flash to manual and whatever I needed. That was simple, but now that I have the 700, I got lost...Can anyone help me out.....
