After reading Colin's answer in the "Noisy wedding photography" thread, www.cambridgeincolour.com/forums/thread12584.htm, I would like some help to understand another issue, hence starting this new thread. I have noted his advice about other suggestion on that thread[IS,Tripod,Holding the camera ect..]
So when using high ISO in indoors, try to push up the EC on the camera [a general guidance I understand].
If I am using an external Flash [Canon 430EX II],
1. What should be the ideal distance, flash to the body of the camera attached on a hand grip?
2. If Camera EC is pushed up should one use the flash exposure compensation to decrease the Flash Exposure Compensation or just leave the flash as default at 1:1?
3. The Canon 430EX II has a diffuser that can be pulled out and flicked onto the face of the flash. Is that diffuser is adequate or better be bounced off a wall or a ceiling?
4.Should set the camera white balance to flash?
I am sorry to put so many questions in single thread and if I get answer any would be greatly appreciated.
Warm Regards [My camera is a Canon 40D]
