    IMO diffuser is the best solution, you can direct the flash to center. then if the light is too bright, set your flash to manual mode and lower down a step and so on until you get the right lighting.

    just sharing..

    By not getting the correct exposure from camera you're already introducing some noise into the picture anyway

    I think the soln has already been discussed.

    D60 is a decent camera and is definately adequate for indoor shooting. However, if u insist on the incorrect usage of the flash, then even a D3 would produce images like what you have in your current portfolio.

    cannot use bigger aperture , cannot focus the subject well (there is such a big area , not portrait , and due to the DOF too)

    and i prefer higher shutter speed , can get the correct motion about 90% of shots



    under all this conditions , i hav to use flash ( coz mine is d60, ISO is really a big kill)
    see this link
    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=584687





    so i think
    the solution is only two:
    1. practise more with flash shooting
    2. change a camera body which has the highest ISO 25600 sth like that , so even use ISO 800 also a acceptable picture quality





    what do you think?
    fren pls giv me comments
    i hope to learn more from u all
    thx
    For ISO try 400 to 800
    Use a slightly slower shutter speed since the use of flash will help to negate a little bit of motion blur. Try 1/30 to 1/60

    Tilt the flash head with bounce card on a little bit towards your subject and up the flash power. Or just shoot with direct flash. Try and see which u prefer.

    Lastly practise more.

    I'm not going to suggest anything about getting a different camera because that's not going to help you improve your shooting skills.

    If you're going to underexpose in camera then increase exposure in PP you'll introduce noise to the picture

    the purpose for using slower shutter speed
    is for maintain the background exposure right?


    next time i will try to shoot directly with a diffuse cap

    with this type of event... you have better luck with a faster lens.
    You can never get a pleasing effect with a flash in this type of environment, regardless of diffuser.
