i was helping out with an event and found that the shots turned out super dark! when the flash fired, EV is automatically reduced, usually -2.7 to -3.0.. i guess that's why it became so dark.
it was in a hall at night. lights are *quite* bright but rather high up.
- nikon sb600:
TTL-BL, with 14mm adapter on
wb = flash
iso = 200
ev = 0
aperture priority, f5.6
shutter = 1/60 (fixed)
the shots were super dark when i fired at iso200, so i was forced to go 800. going thru the manual again, the workaround recommended was to shoot closer to subject, or use a larger aperture.
however, the above seems the same setting used for a friend's wedding. i went back to the shots on the wedding day and saw iso = 200 also.
not sure if it's the WB (not checked yet), but do you think there could be other reasons?
thankfully it wasn't a paid job!
