Hi all, l have a problem which l can't seem to work out. Other day l went down to take a few shots of my sons judo class.
My camera is a 30D with a flash 390EX, The I used my 70-200 f2.8, First l used mode then switched to AV mode and set it on f4.0 so as to get away from the f2.8 softness issue. Some of my pictures turned out great but the other half had skintones really warm, i.e. red faces, seemed under exposed. I had dialed in +1 flash compensation so the white suits didn't fool the (I had it on partial mode) as spot I assumed would make the shots under exposed due to the reflection off their suits. was 1/250th was set at 100, so as get away from any noise issue.
The above formula I assed would have given me decent results but only half my shots were decent the other half had to be ligthened up through photopaint.
Any suggestions or ideas where l went wrong?
