comment Do all my speedlites need to be trigered wirelessly to do proper HSS?
Your terminology is not clear. When you say "slave" do you mean "optically triggered"?

comment What Is The Scale Of The Y Axis of The Histogram in Lightroom / ACR?
@pedr I think it has to do with the gradient. The graph goes from 0-255 and I suspect that the gradient isn't as linear because it may not be that aesthetically pleasing or near the ends it takes more solid to give the pure black or pure white appearance.

comment What Is The Scale Of The Y Axis of The Histogram in Lightroom / ACR?
@Pedr pretty much it. It's more useful to know if the distribution of pixels leans brighter/darker/etc than to know exactly how many pixels are bright/dark/etc. Therefore the scale is not important, only how much higher/lower one part of the graph is compared to the others.

comment Creating a master photo archive - importing photos and detecting duplicates
@JohnSmith you would have to map one folder to another specifically, which could be quite intensive depending on how different your structures are. If the differences are limited to the top of the tree it'd be easier than if they're different all the way to the lowest level folder.

comment What went wrong with this concert photo and what could I have done to make it better?
@blake in this context it means exposure compensation. 0 is normally exposed, positive values (+1,+2, etc) are overexposed and negative are underexposed.

@Blake If it's steady then just work it out in manual mode. It will be the most reliable way once you get the hang of it.

@Blake you just need to learn how the camera and it's settings work. Concert photography isn't very good with the auto/default settings; you really need to dive in and either go full manual or start using more advanced features.

Perhaps you could link to an example of what you're talking about?
