Hi guys. Bought my first DSLR (Sony A200) a couple of days ago and didn't realise it would be so hard to use! I'm off to China in 2 weeks and regretting not buying the camera months ago to give me time to practise. I've been trawling the net a bit to try and find out what settings to use for certain situations and am slowly understanding some of it. However what I am really struggling to work out is why my outside shots come out so dark. Close up the pictures and lighting are fine (as can be seen on the duck photo), but in exactly the same conditions any shots of scenery come out looking like they were taken at dusk. I had read that setting the ISO number higher would mean that it would let in more light at the expense of the quality of the image, but no matter how high I set it the photo came out as dark as the one below (that was on ISO 800.) These were both taken on bright sunny evenings so I'm baffled why one comes out so dark. Can anyone give me any pointers as to where I am going wrong? Thanks in advance.
