You set the exposure control on the camera, rite?? Not the flash rite? And was the flash on the iTTL mode?

I would suggest that you do some trials with the camera and flash settings until you get used to the controls over different lighting conditions as well as room environment.

For a start, if you are shooting direct flash at the subject, such as Gary, you might wish to try lowering the flash's ev setting to about -0.7 to -1.3 (depending on the range you are from the subject)

And if you wish to capture more diffuse lighting, then you may wish to look at other alternatives such as a LS (Light sphere), Omni-bounce, Bounce card, etc...


Cheers,

Exposure looks correct to me. Which one is over/under?

all you can do is to see more photos, shoot more photos, once you see enough of your own photos, from one look on the LCD, you will know is the color balance and exposure right or not.
anyway, you can't expect a find a FIXED setting for ALL the situration, learn to see the histogram, the flash sometime set to zero is good, but sometime need to plus, sometime need to minus. not hard and fast rule.

I'm browsing off my calibrated screen off my PowerBook & desktop LCD now, I can assure you the images you posted of Gary is exposed ok. Colours a bit off, but not that major to make a fuss out of it.
