    shoot in manual. if i shoot in shutter or aperture priority when using off camera flash, i always get funky results because my camera meters for the scene and then the flashes over expose everything. generally speaking, if i'm in my house with a decent amount of ambient light, i shoot at around 1/60, f/4, iso 400 and adjust the flash output to light my subject or for fill. this isn't what i always end up doing, but it can get you good enough results to be satisfied.
