more than half my altar shots of the bride and groom turn out underlit with the reddish hue, as if there was no flash. and yet...i'm shooting with a 30D and 580 flash. luckily i shoot in raw, i can correct most of the shots in CS2. BUT, i don't get it. from what i remember, the iso is at 400, 1/60, 5.6, and i'm at around 10 feet from them. i don't get it. usually when i'm shooting the reception it's at iso 800 and sometimes yes, even 1000 so i can get 1/30 with a 5.6 i do white balancing adjustment by usually clicking on the bride's dress or priest's robe in CS2. then adjust the hue / saturation until it looks good. by the way, how long do you spend editing 800 RAW files? just curious if you spend a lot of time with the histograms.
