I am sorry I meant 1/160. Correct as I am composing the picture my over/under exposure (via viewfinder) shows over exposed before I take the picture. As stated before even with those settings, I personally think the pictures come out pretty good, but I might be wrong.
I have tried TTL and the camera does show a dead center exposure, but I end up with a shutter speed of 4 seconds or more. That is a nightmare trying to do it handheld. I do have a tripod but all the pictures I have been taken are spontaneous so I have been using these settings. I would appreciate everyone's inputs on those pictures of my daughter and if the settings are acceptable.
