022: Friends and flashes

As I was reading about flash modes on my camera I also saw mention of iTTL flash, which doesn’t work with spot metering on (which I use most of the time). I asked these lovely ladies to stand for me while I tried out an automatic flash with spot metering and center-weighted metering.

Despite the squirelly face that Charmian is pulling in the center-weighted photo, the flash is much better: their faces are illuminated much more evenly, which is apparently the nature of the iTTL flash mode.
