Well, I need some technical support so to speak. I am an old fashioned film using photographer. At work, I use a digital camera, nothing fancy an Olympus (I don't know what model) that is running at 5 megapixels. My question is, all of the images come out flat and a bit dark. We do have a couple of strobes, once again nothing fancy or pro grade. How do I fix this contrast problem? Is this something easier than I think it is. Thanks in advanced.

If they come out dark it sounds like an exposure problem. Adding more light will not change that. Try shooting a shot as you now do that comes out dark and note the fstop and shutter speed. Now change to manual mode and open up 1/2 stop wider (for example if the original is at f11, then change to f9.5, etc). Try several changes like this till you get a good exposure. You now know what comensation needs to be made for your camera. Contrast is another matter. Most digital cameras have a contrast setting, so try bumping that up and see what happens. But until you get the exposure right, don't worry about the contrast.
Cheers,
rfs
