I have a problem that my flash SB-910 together with my d300. The picture taken by d300 give a little bit dark pictures and the histogram is a bit to the left compered with the internal flash. The flash compensation and ordinary exposure compensation is at zero. The flash works well with a D3200.
Thanks for your answer Scott Yes my metering modes, subject and framing is consistent from setup to setup. I will send some picture taken with the d300 and the d3200 tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.

The TTL-BL mode is for Fill flash only. It should normally only be used in bright ambient light when the ambient is providing the majority of the exposure. If you use TTL-BL indoors in low ambient light, you will nearly always get dark images.
You should use regular TTL for indoor low ambient pictures with the camera in Manual mode and the ISO never on Auto. I start with 1/80th, f/4.5, and ISO 400 for my indoor people shots. Then, I adjust the shutter up or down to change the amount of ambient in the backgrounds.
There have been reported problems with the d700 hotshoe and the sb910. Seems that the weight of the flash is causing the hot shoe to become loss and causing inaccurate flash/camera firing. This could be happening to your D300.
