Awesome Sherry!! How do you get the subject so clear when there is motion and low light? #567154

Sherry Jordan December 04, 2006

Thanks so much for the feedback. Actually I have to give my camera all the credit for this one. This camera has auto focus but there are three points you can select for it to focus on (left, center or right). I selected my primary subject with the right focus option to throw more light to the left of the subject, sit the camera to the motion shooting mode and it did the rest. As for the low lighting, the exterior flash for the camera provided enough exposure to get the desired result.

Thanks again for taking time to view my photo! #3666481
