Upload & Sell: On
...I do have a flash (580ex II)and tried it too, but those were REALLY washed out and the color was bad... i need a LOT more education and experiance with using the flash !!!!
Okay, we've really gotta see a sample shot to help diagnose the problem(s). Until you get Upload privileges here, if you want to e-mail me a JPEG of one of your flash shots I'll post it for you so we can all have a look at it.
In the mean time, when I'm using flash I set the camera for Av (if DoF is my primary concern), Tv (if subject motion is primary), or (most of the time) Manual, and set the flash for ETTL. I find the ETTL does a pretty good job of adjusting the flash output for varying camera-to-subject distances, and is pretty predictable in those modes.
