I have a D300 4 SB-800's and several pocket wizards II's I am shooting mainly indoor sports in High School and middle school gyms of action sports. I been shooting with the flashes in Manual mode attached to the PWII's I generally shoot in manual 1/400 F2.8 with a 28-70 or 70-200 F2.8 lens iso 800 or higher. I get some nice photos and some photos have been way overexposed. I tried different power settings as well. I'm looking for some ideas or suggestions on this type of flash photography.
