Question about Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera
I'm new at this but my problem is when taking pictures in a studio setting. It seems to me that my pics are under exposed. A shadow shows up on the bottom of the picture. Regardless of how I set up the camera. Is it me and my settings or is something going on with my camera. I use two pocket wizards. I use a 5D and a 20D
A black shadow at the bottom of the image is usually the result of using a shutter speed that is beyond the max flash sync speed of your camera. The max sync speed of the 5D and 20D is 1/200th. In a studio setting with wireless triggers there can be additional latency. Try using a shutter speed of 1/125th and see if that clears it up. You may be able to push it a little higher as pocket wizards are very good wireless triggers but don't use a shutter speed above 1/200th.
