I am wanting to take individual and group still pictures in a school cafteria that has all fluorescent lights. What can I do to prevent shadow on pictures or what type of lighting I need to get a good clear picture. I am new to this type picture taking and I really need help with with my settings or lighting. Hope this all make sense. This is my first post.

Fluorescent lighting is really tricky. Once you get above 1/60th shutter speed, you start capturing only part of the pulse the light fixture emits, so your exposure will be incorrect. It's also hard to whitebalance.

I'd crank up your flash power, and totally kill the ambient lighting if you can.

I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".
