And puts everything at about the same light but would you really want is you really want me.
Portrait of the child you wanna see her face so in that case what you -- to do is force the camera.
To do some fill flash it's called and that's forced the -- the fire and puts the subject's face in in proper lighting.
So you do that by by putting your camera setting that.
That's right if you -- -- flashlight like -- -- like this this one in particular doesn't have a built in flash but you would set the camera you set the mode.
And -- the flash is a little lightning -- right actually is sometimes when as a cross through it it means it's off but -- force it on.
All right and outdoor pictures especially action photos they can creates some problems too.
That -- obviously the blurry one right what happens and that cases it's very bright outside the -- white in light.
And so the camera picks a shutter speed which isn't such isn't really fast enough.

And will actually take a picture which is doesn't have with a long enough exposure so if you put the camera on a tripod or put it on a steady object.
You once again -- shutter priority mode inches longer shutter time you'll get a more exposure there another really good thing about that other picture and this is a look really really good tip.

Because when you take it after sundown you have a little more ambient light and you can see the sky is actually a little bit pattern.
All right some tips do you have when people urging a picture of a person in front of something like a Christmas tree or -- statue you.
They tend to put the person right up against that background you wanna put that person farther forward writer and that once again you can also -- -- the setting in the camera so that the from the front object is more and focused.
The other thing to remember is to not have anything coming out of the person's head.
So sometimes we -- to -- when you're standing right in front of the trees the trees coming out of your head and it doesn't really look so I am definitely guilty of that while some great tips -- -- -- the president of unique photo in New Jersey and you have lots of tips from your classes thank you so much for joining thanks for having.
