I've been shooting my 24-105L for about a month now and I really like it, as long as I don't view the pictures on my computer afterward. The pics on the camera look very vibrant but when I upload them they seem very saturated. I'm shooting a T3I on AV. I am at a loss here. Any advice would be great

Well, you can always lower the saturation in-camera. In the "Picture Styles" menu.

u should set it at Av mode. and since you are shooting your girls.. set it to AiServo. that's what i usually do when i'm out shooting my girls :) i had that lens for about 2wks and it was tack sharp at f4. so it should be sharper.

There's your mistake right there...

Seriously though - if you're shooting RAW it makes no difference as those settings are only applied to JPG's. If you're shooting RAW those settings aren't applied to the shots unless you specify it in DPP I believe. Lightroom doesn't apply them at all regardless.

If you are shooting JPG then I suggest you set it to 0 or 'natural' or whatever the middle of the road setting is and see if you like those results more. As with everything - experiment to find what you like best. There are no right or wrong setting with Picture Styles. It's whatever you prefer.

Check colorspace. If set to Adobe, then switch to sRGB.

They look fine and quite well saturated on my screen.

I agree the baby's skin tones look perfectly natural to me, of course if the pics look ok in camera it could be your monitor settings that you don't like.

If shooting Raw then Lightroom and DPP will still understand the picture style you selected in camera if the camera model is understood. That's what the "as shot" means. Picture style sets the default contrast, sharpening, saturation, and color tone. The presets of standard, landscape, faithfully, neutral, portrait,, monochrome and the user defined settings tweak these 4 parameters. The advantage with Raw is that you can change these in the Raw conversion tool you use. The same is true for "as shot" white balance. The tools understood what you chose when you took the shot but can be changed.

Canon manuals will tell you tha faithfull and neutral can look a little flat that is why "standard" is the suggested setting unless you are committed to adjusting contrast, saturation, and sharpness in the Raw conversion step.

AiServo only effects how the focusing works so in camera and on the computer will be the same. It has no impact on saturation.

The color space of sRGB or AdobeRGB selection depends more on where the conversion to jpeg or Tiff is headed IMO. If its for a monitor choose sRGB. if for a printer I use the larger color space of Adobe. Again the Raw converter knows what you chose in camera but since you shot Raw won't apply it till you convert to jpeg or Tiff giving you the opportunity to change it.

have you ever calibrated your monitor? Even more important is what is your final viewing medium for your photos? That is what you need to calibrate for. If you are going to Walmart and getting the printed there, then you need to calibrate your camera settings to matchfor what your local Walmart is producing in print. If you are just viewing them on your computer monitor, then either adjust at the camera for the monitor, or re-calibrate the monitor to be right. most monitors are set to way over saturate and contrast.

I agree with the rest, look at them on a different monitor, shoot in RAW for easier color adjustments.
(Those pics don't look the sharpest though)

Control ISO, shoot Raw, make sure shutter speed is higher, set it to Servo focus, but most of all, find some really nice light. Those were shot on a very "dull" day.

Dull days are far better for photography. it's the bright sunny days that tend to wash out the colour.

OKaaay.

I'll stop looking for that "golden hour" crap. Thanks for the enlightenment.
