I know I need to find some time to study lighting more in depth, but I came across something that really puzzled me. I have a Canon 30D and 580EX flash. I felt like my on camera flash was giving me better results than the 580 so most of the timeI never used it cause my pictures would turn out darker. Most of the time I shoot 'P'. Well I bought a stroboframe because I was sick of retouching shadows on vertical shots. Using the same 'P' setting and ISO 100 with the same 580 flash connected by the stroboframe, now my pictures are totally white when they used to be dark! Why would the stroboframe change that? Now I am having problems 'darkening' my shots. I tried 250 F8 and they were still bright. But one plus is no shadows now Anyone have any quick suggestions on why I am having problems? I haven't had a chance to go outside and mess with it, everything I have done has been inside. But then again I just got it about an hour ago! Thanks!
