HELP! Frustrated with indoor photography


 
 
I'm not satisfied with my indoor photos. I have a Canon Rebel XT with a 35mm and a 75mm lens (with stablizer). I've tried using tripods and playing with my settings - different ISO, apertures, etc - and yet I just can't seem to get nice clear shots. With flash is of course better without it but still not great. Ideas? Advice? I have an indoor wedding coming and I need suggestions, please...

  well then you should already apologize to the bride and groom. You can't learn that stuff overnight. Don't use flash, use 1600iso.

  Well, it'd really be useful to see some shots that illustrate what kind of focus problems you're talking about. Generally, you could be talking about camera-shake or vibration, or a depth of field problem caused by a a number of things; it could be a camera setting (I'm not familiar with the Rebel XT); maybe a problem with a particular lens you're using if it got dropped or damaged somehow; or a lot of other things. Try and post some images here or in the gallery and maybe describe what part of the photos isn't "clear" or whether it's the whole thing. I'll try and help you out as I'm sure a few others here will.

  Oh, btw Joanne, I don't understand what "clear" has to do with using a flash unless you're talking about something being "washed out" or either over or under exposed. Maybe you could elaborate on that one too.

  If you are not there, it just takes time, if you want get to the the place that you dream of. This is not a thing that happens when someones says ohh, you should do this or that. If you think this is fun and games, then it is. If you Play with PS or Aperature you might get close, but if you are wondering how can I get better, it is the shooting in M-mode that get you\it close to perfection an it was that way with film too. The margin has just gotten smaller.

  I am sure you realize Derek is a jerk, Mark knows what he is talking about and would never lead you astray on purpose.
