Hello all! I have been shooting models for a couple of years with a digital camera. I started with a Nikon Coolpix 880, and am now using an Olympus Camedia. The problem is this: Both of these cameras take great outdoor pics, but indoors, using studio lighting and a flash, the pics are always extremely pixelated, the colors aren't right when I use a flash, and there is always redeye when I use a flash. I am desperate to find out the secret to proper lighting so that my models aren't shortchanged with less than flattering pics?

    First set your digicams white balance to Daylight mode. Manualy set the aperture according to the studio flash. If u have a pc socket, its well. Dont use the built in flashgun. Otherwise use it to sync but place a white card in front of the flash. So that this light will not appear into the exposure. Thanks.
