Here is my daughter picture that I took with the new Calumet Genesis 200. The light setting on this picture; the power is 10 and about 13 feet away from the object. The setting on the T1i is auto. I was wondering if my setting is right? What is the setting I should set on the light and how far should I put the light from the object? Since I am very new at this whole photograph thing, so please help me I've been struggle with the light and the camera. thanks

Do you have the softbox or umbrella? I would move the light closer...real close. Boost the power up to 30 and shoot in manual. Try iso 100 F/8 at 125sec.

This is the same info I was given when I got my setup about 3 weeks ago.

adjusting the power of your light depends on a bunch of factors. The closer the light is to your subject the softer it is. Try to Shoot in Manual with your T1i.

Yea get that camera into manual and try the settings recommended above. Auto limits you sooooo much.

I liked your first picture, though i know that the white balance is off. the warmness of the image and the colors make it very appealing.

you should look at finding a grey reference card to improve your w/b
