    Ok, I just got in my home studio lighting and I am having some issues. It seems that the shadows of all my pics are really grainy, if I zoom in with my Photoshop program they look like sand paper, I can fix it in Photoshop, but it takes a lot of work, anyone have any suggestions....Thanks

    What are your specs? Do you have an example for us? Studio shots should't be grainy.

    Please post sample images and exposure details. A shot of the whole setup wouldn't hurt either.

    Apparently your camera doesn't do ISO 4500 very well. Go down the scale quite a bit.

    Well, to be honest, I don't know. I was using the aperture setting on the camera and that's where is set the iso. I guess I should have mentioned, this was the first time using this camera also. I'm learning, so what should the iso be for studio lighting?
