i used to get very frustrated with the A40 when taking outdoor nite shot with portrait.
if i use flash (even slow syn flash ) the subject ( people) is ok, but background is too far from flash, and basically it is total pitch dark.
if without flash, with a tripod, the overall picture is seen but the subject (people ) is too dark .
Any idea to take good photo under such condition ?
**outdoor night shot, background is 7 meters away, and subject is in 2 meters range.
In fact the pictures looks ok on the LCD screen (camera), but they are much darker after download, can photoshop solve this problem?
I have tried using the adjustment of brightness and contrast but fint it made the pictures look so fake and grainy.
