EOS20D Exposure

I am new to digital photography. After taking a picture my display screen gives me a whole different picture than I see once I have downloaded the images to my computer...can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? The display shows a nicely exposed image..once downloaded I have to go into photoshop and manipulate the way to dark exposure..what am I doing wrong?

thanks.

LCD Image Differs...

In reply to: EOS20D Exposure

Displays can be deceiving due to their small size. The display parameters can usually be adjusted to more closely reflect the final image quality. Perhaps your display is too bright? Also check your ISO. Maybe you need to shoot at a higher speed.

Is your monitor calibrated? It could be that your monitor is

not giving you an accurate rendition of the image.

What settings are you using on the 20D? It may show a brighter image at initial capture, but my display only stays on for four seconds. If I want to examine the picture, I have to recall it. I've never noticed a problem. I use the 'P' setting right now, and am capturing mostly raw images. When I do take jpegs, they look fine.

Recheck the camera's histogram while shooting pictures !

In reply to: EOS20D Exposure

Recheck your camera's histogram while shooting pictures, and understand the correct light compensation ( exposure )! While shooting in manual mode, the camera was forced to shoot at the extreme light condition in which camera was supposed to adjust to the different ISO, shutter speed, and aperture value. Start learning how to shoot from auto mode . Then, you can later adjust in other mode. Good luck.
