Hello, I am new to this forum and would like some feed back on what kinds of flash you use during a wedding at a church. I am currently a film only photographer and have been doing weddings for about 6 or 7 years now. (One might think after that long, I would not have this issue) My pictures looked more flashed instead of ambient light. They look good (I would think of course! ha) But I would like more existing light. I normally shoot in a church on 30th at a fstop of 5.6. I use a Mamiya AF with a Sunpak hand held flash. I normally take it off the bracket and hold higher with left hand so to chase down any shadows that may exist. What will it do if I drop my shutter to say a 15th....? Do I adjust my fstop....or is it the shutter that will allow more existing light in? Can I slow even more since I shoot on a tripod. I have a wedding this Friday night and thought I'd make notes and do a couple of test shots. I also saw another photographer use a round hand held flash with a diffuser over it...like a cap dont' know what kind it was, but saw his pictures and the lighting was great. I guess I'm just not satisfied with my look any longer. Do any of you ever experience that? Thanks alot. I have used several forums and love being able to get input from others.
