The photos are coming out dark and I'm told that ISO should help but don't see an ISO adjustment within the camera settings of Sparkbooth. Does anyone have suggestions? I'm not using flash but am using LED studio lighting

My camera is a Canon T2i

    You need to adjust the ISO on your camera.

    What is suggested F, ISO and Shutter? Should I use what the video used?
    I'm going from webcam based to dslr

    I do not know. There is no suggested setting since it depends on the
    lighting and environment you are in

    The ISO is set to automatic I've managed to lighten the images some but still is too dark. I'm reading up on the F numbers. Another thing I don't understand is the shutter number on the camera settings within sparkbooth. WHat is that?

    If you do not know how to use a DSLR, I recommend taking a class. There
    many online classes like

    I had a webcam based booth for years and never learned DSLR. BUt I'm learning my LED flash is part of the problem.
