Adjusting the exposure, color, and light conditions

Good exposure for your photos requires the right amount of light. Different exposures are required, for example, when taking photos of faces, moving objects or in low light.

To optimize light conditions

  • Look for light with direction and color that gives a scene shape and depth. This type of light occurs just before sunrise and at sunset. Natural light from a window is also good.
  • For higher quality photos in low light, you need to keep the camera steady. You can place the camera on a solid surface and use the self-timer.
  • Even if light conditions are poor, try to take photos with and without the flash. Sometimes the quality is better without the flash.
