I have been asked to take pictures of a father/daughter dance at the local elementary school. I have a T2i, Speedlite 580EX and off-camera shoe cord 2 to connect them. I have been doing some test shooting since I just got the camera. I have tried different combinations but can't get a quality photograph. A majority of them came out very dark. Any suggestions for settings?
Thanks in advance.

What modes are you shooting?

If you are shooting in a place where the ambient light isn't changing and you are lighting the photo mostly with flash, I'd use full manual mode with manual flash.

Check out the link in my signature for a bunch of tutorials that will help you with this.

I have tried just about every mode possible, except the one that will work.
I will check out the tutorials, tiberius47. Thanks.

Post some examples with EXIF. Otherwise, it's hard to tell if your description is truly complete.


T2i . 18-55 IS . 70-300 IS USM . 70-200 2.8L IS . 28mm 1.8 . 100 Macro . 430EX II . TT1/TT5 . Bogen/Manfrotto 3021 w/3265 ball-mount
