We could go 'round and 'round for days deconstructing your lighting setup and I'm not really up for that. In short, think it's a good, clean and well-executed shot that, in my opinion, has some room for improvement.

    I do notice the shutter speed for this shot was 1/250 so I feel compelled to point out the D7500 has a "native" synch speed of 1/200. You can use High Speed Synch (HSS), what Nikon calls "Auto FP" in the Custom Settings menu, but that's a very different animal and it certainly wouldn't be needed for a shot of this nature. So, while I have managed to get away with using 1/250 shutter speed (without engaging Auto FP) on occasion, I suggest you get in the habit of using a shutter speed of 1/200 or slower when using flash.

    Again, my thank's Paul. I have now overcome my initial reluctance to try off camera flash with this "baptism of fire". The community asked me and I was pleased though nervous to help. Your input made things much easier for me and feedback from the community indicates that it worked to their satisfaction.

    I will now start playing with lamp positions and appropriate shutter speeds. I agree that these are a little "flat" but overall, I'm pleased.

    Re: YN622N-TX Shooting Menu Setting D7xxx

    I recently acquired a Yongnuo YN622N-TX to go with my pair of YN622N transceivers and YN568EX flashes.

    I followed the advice on this thread (setting the flashes to i-TTL) but the flashes do not adjust to the settings I input on the YN622N-TX.

    I know the YN622N-TX is communicating with the transceivers due to the test button firing the flashes.

    I am am hoping that someone can help me figure out what may be going on.

    Thanks in advance!

    Like you I struggle with comprehending flash and the Nikon system of controlling it.

    I believe that adjustments made on the TX do affect the RX/flash correctly provided one of the three channels on the TX is set to TTL but, those adjustments do NOT appear on the flash screen.

    Ivan,

    Thank you for the quick reply!

    It baffles me as to why it does not change the display on the actual flashes, but I guess that must be the way Nikons work with Yongnuo.

    While doing some research on this I found videos where the flash display did change when adjustments were made, but that must have been on a Canon.

    I hope to get some time in tomorrow to test everything again!

    If I remember correctly it doesn't change on the screen until after the shot has been taken. The TX does control it. Play with the power settings on the TX and I think you will see the difference in the photos.

    Do you have Auto-ISO enabled?

    Paul,

    I do believe that Auto-ISO is enabled, but I am shooting in Manual mode and set it myself. Will that have an impact when using these?

    I found a Youtube video from Tim Payne who runs Yongnuo-usa.net and everyone was correct, the display on the flash will not change as the settings are adjusted.

    Well if I understand you correctly what you're saying is the exposure adjustments you are making on the 622-TX are not affecting the flash output, i.e. you reduce exposure by two-stops on the TX but when you review the shot the exposure does not appear to have been reduced by two stops. If that's the case, I'm wondering if Auto-ISO may be increasing the brightness of the shot. I'm not sure what you mean when you say, "... and set it myself", however. When you say "it" are you referring to Auto-ISO?

    I suggest you turn off Auto-ISO and dial in a specific ISO manually, say ISO 200, and see if this resolves the settings issue you're having.

    Paul,

    Thank you for all the advice/suggestions as I try to work through this. Looking back at what I had typed, I don't think I made it as clear as I could have been and for that I apologize.

    My main question was that when I make an adjustment on the YN622N-TX controller, it was not reflected on the display of the YN568EX flash. After I found the video posted by Tim, it cleared that up.

    In the post you quoted above, I was trying to state that I am shooting in Manual and setting the ISO 400 (for example).

    I appreciate all the help and guidance you provide on the forum!
