comment How can I improve my exposure in low-light situations?
I wanted to add that I hadn't understood 'dialing down flash' until you mentioned it. I researched it as well as how to do it on my camera and it has made the world of difference! Thanks again!

comment How can I improve my exposure in low-light situations?
I appreciate everyone's feedback! All of this information prompted me to look at some additional settings on my camera such as the white balance and a few others. It definately has made the difference! When shooting portraits, should I use my 35mm f/1.8 lens, the kit lens 55-200 4.5 or the 55-300 lens I have? Those are the three I have.

I love this website! Thanks so much, I can't wait to try the suggestions to see if it helps! I do fine outdoors in natural lighting and most of the time indoors too, this church causes me problems with the lighting every time!

Thank you. The first picture I posted (all the heads in the background) was to show the lighting in the room and yes the 'flat' effect I am getting. This was not a 'portrait but rather a 'snapshot' of them walking that the mother wanted. I agree, I needed to frame them better. I did use flash aimed directly at the subject. After reading your comments I am now curious if I could simply not use my flash (SB-900), it seems the pictures were really dark without it but perhaps I simply wasn't going low enough with my f-stop and high enough with the ISO?

Thanks, I agree, the lighting is what is driving me crazy. I took a family shot in another room where there was better lighting and like it much better. I will try posting the one taken in another room where there was better lighting.
