    I shot an engagement session with another photographer. She claimed she has done photography for 20 years but yet she showed up with no external flash shooting at 4 pm! Anyway, she told me that my flash is messing up her focus. Is that statement true? I understand messing up her exposure, I don't know about focus?

    Oh also she was using a zoom lens that is about 18-100mm maybe? She had the hood rotated wrong. The long sides were on the sides! I didn't tell her because I didn't want to sound like a jerk. I am pretty sure she will see the hood if she is shooting wide. Or maybe this is an advance technique I didn't know about?

    I have no idea about the answers to your questions however how did you set this up? It seems weird that this was not spoken of before you shot together?

    I have seen 'pro' photographers do things and say things that made my jaw drop.

    i wonder since it wasn't synced with yours that the light burst from your camera was somehow offsetting hers? Kindda weird. Never heard of this before

    yeah, a flash can help you focus... well the IR beam... but it won't affect somebody else's focus, that's a little ridiculous. Unless they're just saying they can't concentrate (focus) with a flash going off.

    Did she have the hood on backwards, because maybe she wasnt getting lens flare at the moment, and you can turn it around when needed? prob best you didnt tell her she had it on wrong.
