Sometimes I just hate taking pictures at night because of these simple reasons:
a) my camera will not be able to capture the low lights
b) noisy pictures and thus it won’t be sharp
c) bulky camera that won’t fit into my tiny clutch
The party shots won’t turn out nice. If I use the flash, it’ll be too harsh and thus highlighting the front objects leaving the background totally black! I really envy those people who have great shots from the party scenes and so I asked them what camera they are using.
“SLR la… with flash!”
“Huh? You brought the whole bulky bag to club?!!”
“Gosh, that was too much for me. That won’t match my style!”
See, that’s the reason why I don’t get nice pictures in the night. Investing in a SLR is already costly, and now I need to invest in a good flash and lug that big bag around? Haha… no thanks.
The lights are too dimmed and the pictures are slightly blurred.
Even under the lights, half of my face is in darkness!
Then, I found a way how to get the camera I wanted to take these shots and the best thing is, I don’t need to spend a cent! I discovered that there’s this contest where you can have a chance to win the new Cybershot TX-7 by joining either one of these contests:
It’s a game where you just have to play around with the virtual camera and capture the shot as per instruction given. Then, submit your score and details to win!
