I don’t hate ETTL Im just comfortable with Manual
I just came from The Island of Boracay in Philippines last weekend for a convention. I was planning to go around shooting local scene but instead I got a better deal.
I met a fellow photographer Carlo Cabral on the trip and on one occasion asked me to shoot a friend during sunset. His friend, who’s name wants to be anonymous, is a yoga practitioner and gave us a few Yoga pose. With the stunning background, gold and red sunset, of Boracay I was thinking should I shoot ETTL for a quick out take or Manual. For some reason I felt more comfortable using manual. I guess because I have been listening to Zack Arias lecture too much on one light. I took my Canon 7D, set the pop-up flash as a master triggering one 580 EX II (power set to 1/4) held by my friend Carlo and with just three test exposure and boom!
Hope you guys like this.
