Camera 5d mk2.
L series 24-70 @ 68mm
Flash 580 EX2 - ETTL mode. (I leave the flash, dont add power etc, just connect it to camera and off I go....)
Hand held - stood about 5 feet away. And the image is dark? Why?
I also took group shots when the family was stood on the stage, and again there skill was much darker than their actual skin tone? why- any idea's ?
I have many images where they keep coming out darker than I would prefer. BUT when I switch the camera to FULL AUTO mode, the same image comes out much better exposed and generally looks better than when I shoot the same image using M - RAW.
As always, ANY help and advice will be taking into consideration and practiced!!
PS. Im beginning to think my lens is crap or something wrong with the camera - but it cant be can it?
PPS. I shoot with the Picture setting on Standard (plus 2 on contrast) I have even shot with portrait - but still dark...
And I know I can sort it out using Photoshop, but I dont want to spent all my time and effort on 1,000 images! I need to get my head round and understand what I am doing wrong...!!
