About This Image

My grandchildren are the subject. I used the auto setting with no flash for this one and found it difficult to get a sharp focus, any tips on this one?

I think it's wonderful just the way it is! Like an impressionist painting.

Hi Corbin, thanks for the advice, I didn't use the self timer. I will in future though. I have some night traffic light shots that I took several times untill I dicovered the self timer which made all the difference.

Hello Grahameg. If you used a tripod did you use the self timer on your camera? in such low light the movement that you get from pressing the shutter release will give you blur. I suggest you set your self timer on the camera and try this shot again. A wonderful Idea and would be perfect if not for the blur.

Ok Carol I won't say a word to him. km, I did use a tripod but must try the other trick with the sound promising

I think it's got a lovely glow. Perhaps you need to use a tripod in the low light. Maybe you could glue the kids down for a few seconds!! lol!
