You can also use the camera's custom function--Enable Safety shift in Av or Tv. The camera will automatically raise the aperture to prevent overexposure at max sync speed.

Thank you so much for all the examples and suggestions. I will start with using the High-Speed Sync. Shoot shoot shoot. Play play play....lol

I did read it Curtis, and I responded accordingly. My first statement about the shot being underexposed was in response to the reply indicating the shot was properly exposed. Then I went on to describe how to use flash to correctly expose the shot.

Do you really think that the half of the dog and most of the shot that is not completely in shadow is that terribly underexposed?

Hi Derek,

No, I don't think the shot is terribly underexposed. I believe the shot is slightly underexposed but the left side of the dogs face and the left eye is underexposed to the point of being buried in shadow. A little bit of fill would bring up those areas in shadow.

I noticed that the first photo of the dogs was taken with the Sun directly behind them and the second had the sun to the left. The sun could be fooling your camera. I would suggest taking the comparison photos with the same setup. The only variable would be the flash.

Try manual mode with the same aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focal length for both photos to see the effect of the flash.
