Indoor Portraits
« on: November 10, 2008, 02:22:09 PM »
Hi there guys! Here yet another new A200 user - have to say, although I've only made a few small trips with it, I'm already completely in love (as u probably will understand).

The pictures I've made so far, are good - especially the ones made outdoors - though, I seem to have troubles with getting the right setting and exposure for the indoor photographs. I want the portraits to be really sharp, as in the background all blurry, and I want the picture to have a warm look to it - not the white flashy faces we all have in the winter.

I mean, that's what the camera is for: capture a moment, and make it look even better than the reality!

Thanks for the tips! Much appreciated!

Welcome to these forums. Tips are easy to get here. But, do you have some samples? Just one or two would be fine (nothing fancy).
