Uhh having a hacky sack ball is a production of static. Next time don't put something cotton on your video card. You may be in luck if it's still running!

That's what I was thinking, it's a little underexposed.

I tweaked it a little bit in Photoshop:

I had the aperture on F8 and let the shutter do it's own thing...should I try a different/better combination ?

If you shot Aperture-Priority, the shutter will adjust to get to the cameras light meter for a 'correct' exposure. If it's too dark or bright, use exposure compensation to adjust it, or switch to manual and dial in a faster/slower shutter speed.

I like the pics, however they do seem a bit underexposed. That dark look is often difficult to achieve without underexposing the shots. If you camera has it, you could try adjusting the exposure compensation. Or if you have a big white piece of foamboard or posterboard, you could use it to reflect some ambient light back onto your subject to help get a little more light onto the computer. At least, that is what I would try. I'm no professional photographer by any means, so maybe someone with more experience in these types of shots could step in and help.

If you have photoshop or similar, you could try to dodge and burn to fix the exposure. Dodge the area's you want brighter, and burn the areas that you want lighter. Search google for digital dodge and burn tutorials for help on doing that. There are plenty out there.

I will add another light/ and or posterboard, and see how that works out...yeah I have photoshop, just trying to get the raw pic to a better look from the get go.

thanks

Almost... Burn to darken, dodge to lighten. Good old darkroom technique

Once again... camera doesn't matter nearly as much as planning out your lighting.
