I am getting some studio lights, stands, softboxes, umbrella etc etc for christmas...
Anyways, getting anxious and already reading about using an exposure target to set exposure with histograms . Then using that target image to set my custom white balanace
I have this target:
Will the camera's metering mode matter?
I know if possible I should fill the image with the target, but do i use spot metering, evaluative, etc or does it even matter in manual mode with respect to the histogram?
Also, since Im using a hotshoe adapter for the sync cord connection.... do I need to do anything special with the camera's flash settings? (my xsi manual says it will sync up to 1/200 with non-canon ex flashes, so assuming im limited to that)
confused in kentucky...
