I need help
I have to take a group photo at church tomorrow, Tuesday the 12th. I haven't used the Cactus V6's in a few months.
Yesterday, I attempted to set up my flashes shooting into my umbrellas but couldn't get them to fire in Manual mode.
I have two Nissin Di866 and one Nikon SB-800 shooting with a Nikon D-300.
I had the Nissin's as my main and fill and was using the SB-800 as a background light. I had each of the flash units set to manual and my camera set to command mode in the flash settings. I got nothing to work.
Then, I changed the camera mode to manual flash and still nothing.
I can get it to work in TTL mode but I will need a little more control than it is providing.
Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or tell me what setting I need to utilize.
Thanks for the help.
