    A SB-700 and a Vello - Bounce Dome will be delivered to my door tomorrow. Can''t wait to get hands on it.

    After reading the threads on TPF and google, I get some info about bounce flash from the wall/ceiling, reflector, aperture controls background & shutter controls the subject.
    Any suggestion and online tutorial reference would be appreciated.

    I think you have the aperture and shutter backwards, in a way. Shutter controls how much ambient light get in - darker background = faster shutter speed. Aperture is for exposing the subject.........

    I think this is 95% correct but I don't think it is technically 100% correct. My only "issue" with this is that aperture will certainly have some limited effect on ambient exposure. SS is clearly the starting point for adjusting AE but if you need to further kill AE, stopping down the lens a bit further will also reduce AE.

    Yes but wouldn't stopping down the lens possibly underexpose your subject - depending on your distance from the subject?

    I don't think so if you're using flash because it's generally not affected by aperture.

    How is it not affected by aperture??

    I asked Derrel how to expose with flash and here is his answer


    This is from the link you posted:
    My problem with the first statement is that it disregards that aperture and ISO both control ambient exposure as well.

    Where this ‘short-cut’ came into being, is that with manual flash, our exposure is controlled by 4 things: aperture, ISO, distance (from light source), and power of our light source, and this leaves shutter speed as our only independent control for ambient light.

    It is essential to understand that with TTL flash, things change a little. Actually, things change a lot, since exposure control for manual flash and TTL flash are entirely different.
