    STYLECAM BLINK II QUICK TIPS
    Taking Pictures Indoors – General Do’s



    Try to take pictures in an area where there are a lot of colors and patterns. If taking a portrait picture
    of a person, make sure the clothing does not have a high contrast to the background (e.g. white shirt
    against black background).
    Depending on the subject and the indoor conditions, it is generally better to have the light source at
    an angle (e.g. 45 degrees) from the subject instead of directly in front of or directly behind the
    subject.

    Taking Pictures Indoors – General Don’ts









    Avoid an area where the wall is the main portion of the image.
    Avoid light sources positioned directly behind or directly in front of your subject.
    Usually the indoor lighting is very diffused; therefore, try to avoid bright light sources in the picture. A
    great variance in lighting in a single frame can cause improper exposure because the digital camera
    cannot judge the amount of light correctly (e.g. shaded hallway and bright entryway).
    Try to avoid a light source that is brighter than the subject.
    Don’t take a picture directly into the light.
    Try to avoid half sunlight and half-fluorescent light, or any mixture of different lighting.
    Avoid taking pictures of a computer screen.
    Avoid an object in the picture that could reflect light and that is close to the person taking the picture
    (e.g. glass bottle, white shirt, glasses, etc.).

    Taking Pictures Outdoors – General Do’s




    Try to take pictures in an outdoor setting where there are a lot of colors and patterns.
    It is better to have the subject facing the sunlight instead of having the back to the sunlight.
    Try to position your subject close to the center of the picture.

    Taking Pictures Outdoors – General Don’ts




    Avoid taking a picture where there is a shiny surface or reflective area in the image (e.g. glass,
    metal).
    Avoid pointing the camera directly at a shiny surface.
    Do not take pictures of both shaded and sun lit areas together. While our digital camera does make
    great adjustments for this, it is unable to clearly adjust for vast differences in lighting as compared to
    the human eye.
