Hi

I want to make some portrait indoor using the flash detached on tripod. If I got it correctly I have to set it in servo mode.
The flash works correctly, it shoots sensibly after the camera (I do not understand why), but the flash is obviously lighting the scene in the picture.
All that said, I am not able to find the correct settings to have a correct exposure. I tried all kind of combinations, but I always find overexposed (without contrast in the best case) or underexposed.
Any help? Thank you.

A quick tip. Use your cameras aperture to control the power of your flash and take the power of the flash down 1/4 on your flash and f8 on your K5 will often be a good starting point if you don't have a light meter.

Move the flash back from the subject...
