There is no danger of any false feeling of security here, at least on my
part. A small number of guests is a help, though, and the absence of parents
should reduce the tension level also. Furthermore, they asked me to do the
photography after seeing some of my other photographs.

I have an SB-25 which I use quite often with another camera system. I do not
have a T-32, sorry to say. Besides, the SB-25 is an excellent flash with a
guide number of 138 vs. the T-32's 104; it has a zoom lens with a range of
24 mm to 85mm. Unfortunately, these pluses won't matter if I can't get it to
work in OTF mode.
