Non-TTL flash use with K100D

Settling for a simple auto twin-flash fow now I'd like to know from you experts how best to use such a flash gun with my K100D (trigger voltage tested OK). It's a Woctron 2820 twin (GN28) with bounce and swivel. Can I only use M mode on the camera?

Match the ISO and the f-number for different auto settings (for the camera and the flash). Check for the exposure, if it is too bright, close down the f-number a bit (against what is indicated for the flash's that auto setting position) and open up if the pics appear dark. Do check and calibrate for both direct and rebounced flash, which the exposure results maybe somehow different. Once calibrated, it should work fine.

To control the exposure of ambient light, i.e, usually the background, set the Tv in M mode (longer Tv to get more light and higher Tv to cut ambient light).
