I invite you to read my blog articles here:
http://nikonclspracticalguide.blogspot.com/2008/01/nikon-flash-two-separate-metering.html

Read them in order. These are very basic articles on how to take good flash pictures with Nikon equipment. Let me know if you have questions.

Troy,

Thanks to Russ' blog, I've gone from a strobofobe to an ardent strobe user, with SU800, SB900s AND Westcott 45" umbrellas.

Before Russ I was one of those blurry to the max available light photographers, who had every excuse in the book about why strobes were not cool.

I found the road to flash success is read and practice, practice and read.

Good luck.

thanks a bunch Ron.this is just what I needed.I'm sure that I will have to read it more than once.I am following your suggestion and reading it in order.then I will go back to specific sections as I try to get it correct.I'm thinking a little,simple,home made cheat sheet to help me out untill memory kicks in.this will be a fun spring/summer with a new camera and what will seem like a new flash.
