Hi all,
I am trying my best to learn my SB800. I am getting better knowing TTL and TTL-BL. One question I have is that while TTL is good for flashing the main subject and TTL-BL is good for balancing the subject with ambient, how does one determine which mode to shoot people at dusk with a beautiful sunset? Would you meter for the sky and shoot TTL? Would you do a FV lock on the subject the meter for the sky and shoot TTL? I am soooo confused with this conundrum. Thanks for your input. Daniel
