He's using a slave flash? Then he needs to compensate for it by purposely underexposing the picture. The camera, when in any kind of program mode, calculates what settings are needed to correctly expose the picture with just the on-camera flash. When you add another flash that the camera wasn't expecting, it's going to overexpose the shot unless you take it into account beforehand.

Now back to talking about stars....

That's exactly his intention.

Anyways, stars.

I revealed the mystery of the infamous Wolf Star at the TorontoMeet (I refuse to call it Mochimeet)... also what one has to do to get one.... or rather, what to do to make sure you never get one: ask. hahahah

well, i'm still learning how to use it properly, but i DID underexpose the shot. that photo was taken with a very small arpeture, with only a 1 ms shutter. the washed out overbright look is sometimes desirable.

that particular picture turned out pretty good ... the hands are a bit overexposed but the faces look great, of course they are blurred in this public version.

Hey, I think it is sorta unfair for some people not to be able to get wolf and other certain stars because they cannot get to toronto for a meeting that they would come but either don't have the money or the time to come. I don't want to whine but I've sorta wanted a wolf star like alot of people do but i don't know how to get it. also, is it over a period of time that you can become a moderators or based on your posts or do you have create your own board to get one of those stars?

EDIT: kudos on this site av, and all others, that have worked on making this the site that is today. you really have come along way and i hope you realize how many people you have helped and influenced. thanx for letting people like us that you personally do not know join this site, it has influenced me to explore more.

Guess way UrbanEskimos, the star means NOTHING! And has NOTHING to do with having been to a meet in Toronto. I've been to All the Toronto meets and don't have one, and guess what, who cares?? It's just a silly wolf-head! It is entirely meaningless, and shows no particular rank or distinction to those who have them.

So everyone, get over the wolf stars! Stars don't matter! They mean nothing! When I read a post 9 times out of 10 I never even notice what stars the person has. Just the name and the content. So work harder on posting good information then collecting stars.

Edit: God damn! Right after I go and say all that, I get a magic Star! Way to go me and not being observant! Just goes to show how little I notice the stars though. Which only backs up my second point. So... yeah, ignore that first paragph, skip straight to the second. K, thanks!

You said you didn't want to whine. So stop whining.

It's all a big joke. The wolf star has NO meaning. And there are users that are NOT from Toronto that have one.

I will tell people this though: asking for one will GUARANTEE that you NEVER get one.

i wasn't asking for one i was asking how to earn it. i probably will never get it but i just wanted to know if it was possible and if it was how?

For chrissakes! Can a mod/admin please lock this thread? Obviousely there will be not much more real discussion of the star system.

UrbanEskimos: You won't get a wolf star. Simply asking for one outright will not get you one either. The current recipients of the wolf star did not ask for the star, they just got it. Do you really think that avatar-x will just give a wolf star to anyone who asks?
