I am having to continually lighten up all of my shots in Capture NX2 when using a SB-900 flash indoors. from the attached photo you can see that something is very very wrong. I am using a D300 with the SB-900. I'll list the settings I used for this terrible shot. Lens is a 24-70 2.8 focal length 24, the shooting mode was P. From the CaptureNX2 numbers it showed that the aperture was f7.1 1/60 speed and TTLBL. Because I saw I was having problems I changed the ISO from 400 to 800 for this shot but if anything it was worse than ISO400. I am noticing that the EV indicator is flashing and showing a negative exposure line on the camera.
My problem might be that I am expecting the camera and flash should work OK in P mode and nothing changed on the flash other than making sure that TTLBL is selected. My last 300 odd indoor shots prove that much more is needed.
HELP!!....what am I doing wrong
