I am new D70 user with only kit lens and nothing else.

I've tried taking indoor pictures with the below settings, however it seem to be quite dark. Can anyone advice me what is the best and usual setting for a good indoor shoot if i am only using the build-in flash?(I got to get SB600)


Below is the picture... I've a good model at home for me to practice...hehe..
Let me know if you guys want a model, i'll give you a reasonable price for hiring the model.


Aperture: f/4.5
Exposure time: 0.017 s (10/600) (1/60)
Focal length: 62.00 (620/10)

try to get more ambient light in.
Many ways to do it.

Slower shutter speed.
Bigger aperture
Faster ISO
Slow sync flash

Avoid the window in the background, it will normally fool the metering

get a bounce flash, makes a world of difference to indoor shots.

you can achieve better results by

1. use a fast lens like 50mm f1.8 @ f1.8 and high ISO to capture the object with ambient lighting

2. use flash light to bounce to ceiling to give a diffuse effect
