just wondering if I can get a bit of help, please. I'm probably doing something really stupid and haven't realized.
I usually shoot newborn/baby photos in a studio with flash, I have all my settings worked out for that and know where I am. However, I was asked by a friend to photograph an indoor event and I agreed, did a bit of research, and thought I had my camera properly set up.
The first few photos came out okay. The next image came out way too dark and the next one was overexposed. I was shooting in manual and hadn't changed any settings at all. ISO was fixed, along with shutter speed and aperture (I can't remember the settings now sorry, I think I was on f4.0 as the lens I was using didn't allow for anything wider).
The lighting in the room did not change and nothing else changed that I can think of. The photos are essentially the exact same except that some have come out ideal and others too dark, others too light.
I have no idea what could have caused it, I'm sure it's something I'm not doing in the camera, or perhaps I shouldn't have been in manual and would have been better in a different mode to keep the correct exposure?
Any advice would be welcome. I am self-taught and still learning so would really appreciate it.
