been yr+ using my cam, day shot have no issue now..
but still, coming to night portrait and challenging situation with a grp of 4 subjects.. totally demoralized. I know the standards, use a flash, use a tripod, use wide open aperture, use high ISO.
hoping someone can grant me some godly tips.
some details of the scenario..
1) 4 ladies (friends)
2) under extreme dim light corners, barely light up the surrounding
the above are the standard issues of night shot, without a tripod or which is not possible. Yes, I know such situation is bad, real bad.
but how can I keep the shots as clean as possible which I find my D90 anything beyond ISO400 is gone case, worst to worst, I at most set to ISO800 to extreme @ 800.
1) Not possible to hit @ F2.8 for grp as DoF too shallow, so I up my aperture to F3.5-4 on my tammy.
2) Sb600, with head pointing 45 or upwards with a diffuser or a white paper. Not 90 degree front as the light is too harsh or background totally underexpose.. if shutter too long, blurred shot. I know flash can freeze the motion, but the quality of the result just dun favor me.
basically most of my shots for solo is 2.8 with SB600 and ISO up at 500. barely fared well but noisy. for group shot, F3.5-4 with similar setting, but trying very best to hold steady as shutter turned slower.
Any tips on how to point the flash? Hope I do not get a reply .. asking me to get SB900.
