I'm relatively new to using flash lighting whilst using my 8x10 camera.

I know that sync speed is not an issue with leaf shutters but more than that I would like to understand the following from your experiences especially when shooting indoor portraits or still life.

I am planning to use broncolor powerpacks and two lampheads.

1. Given that shutter speed sync is not an issue, is there a rule of thumb in terms of which shutter speed to use? I'm thinking that I should be thinking in aperture stops when shooting with flash.

2. What kind of metering techniques do you use with indoor flash photography especially with multiple light sources?

3. Is there a specific power rating I should look for in a power pack? 1600 Joules/Watts? 3200 Joules/Watts
