Has anyone managed to master fill-in flash using fully automatic flash systems?

I'm lookin for techniques, such as fooling the ISO setting, sticking diffuser over the head etc. Let me know what you do and what systems you use.

I am a commercial and PR Photographer in london and have to travel very light on the tube train. So I had to consider weight when buying my kit.I use a canon eos3 with two 550ex flash guns mounted on manfrotto stands with two small brollies and a ST-E2 transmitter, altought I lose a little bit of power it gives me good results and does not mean i have to lug loads of heavy equipment to the job.To see examples of work look at www.spillerphoto.co.uk.

By "fully auto" are we talking about auto exposure on the camera and ETTL (say) on the flash?

Just that I shoot M on the camera and ETTL on flash if I'm on the move - e.g. at a wedding.

So never gone fully auto

I use the same set up as Ade, or sometimes shoot in Av mode with the flash on ETTL.

yeah, that was my fault. Thought I was working from the most recent stuff. Ah well. I'm not the first and probably not the last Smile
