Fill Flash

It was suggested that I use fill flash when shooting in harsh, bright sunlight. I have an SB-600 and a D70. I assume that the flash head is at 90* since there is no bounce off of the sky, correct? Also, in this situation, should I have it set to TTL BL or just TTL? Or does it matter on the distance to the subject?

Thanks.

You will probably experience the best results with your flash at a 90 degree angle and set to TTL BL. After shooting an image, check your histogram and increase/reduce power as needed. If your flash came with a diffuser, that may be of use as well.

the pop up flash on the D70 does a great job at fill flash and is able to be set as such. Distance is certainly a concern. The manual has a rather cryptic description of this feature.
