Put the Sun to your back, Use the flash, Use a tripod it's very important to keep your camera steady to avoid blur, Put your digital camera on manual settings and set aperture to the possible lowest number, Boost your ISO, Be careful about auto-focus and last but not least move closer to the light source. http://wishandco.kr/

I notice the question said bad lighting, so maybe not just lack of light. One example of bad lighting is low ceilings with those little round lights that should be warming food at a dinner, not illuminating a dance floor. Avoid taking shots when people are directly under those lights. Wait until they are between the lights or at least off to the side of the light. If those are tungsten bulbs, try changing your cameras white balance using the color temperature setting. You may need to go down to 2700K before things look right.
See if your camera has "rear sync" or second curtain sync for the flash. Set the exposure based on the room light, then take a flash shot of two people dancing (you should be too close to fit more than two). You should see a motion blur trailing them, then they will be sharp, frozen, and well illuminated by the flash.

You can find the manual here. They have some suggestions for shooting in low light:

  • Set scene to "NATURAL LIGHT" Capture natural light indoors, under low light, or where the fl ash can not be used.
  • or set Scene t "PARTY" Capture indoor background lighting under low-light conditions.
Use a tripod if available, or brace the camera against a wall, table, or other fixed object when taking pictures to reduce blurriness.
If you don't have an object to brace the camera against, use these techniques to reduce camera shake. Press the camera button instead of jabbing at it.
Search the internet for "low light photography" for more tips. The PARTY and NATURAL LIGHT settings on your camera should boost the ISO on your camera.
Do some test shots before hand in low light situations to see what works best.

No picture onTV screen only audio after lightning


May be your picture tube got damaged in that lightning. This may be an effect of the magnetization of the picture tube due to a huge electric current passing near it. Try demagnetizing the tube and if it doesn't work get it replaced. Try having a properly working tube of an older television as modern picture tubes lack quality.

I love taking wedding photos. do you think the


Yes, I'm sure that camera will be fine, the 20D some years back was considered OK for wedding images
BUT its more about the quality of the LENS you are using and will it wok in all situations
I used to do a lot of Film work for weddings and used various canon camera bodies, but the lenses where the important factor for speed, composition - I also used a top quality flash unit, that could be used OFF camera. I used a 28mm lens, 50mm 1.8 lens - very high quality and cheaply available, 135mm portrait lens, and various zoom lens
I also always used a tripod, so i could compose the groups and then leave, the camera and go and work with setting up the group, and using a remote take the picture. I also used a flash frame on the flash, so I could turn the camera between portrait and landscape with out worrying about the flash gun

Model no 21NE60 BREAK DOWN BECAUSE OF LIGHTNING


Lightning is never good.
Could be as simple as a fuse repalcement may be as bad in just getting a new TV.
You may want to check with your home owners insurance policy also as they may cover the repair or help in the cost of a replacement unit/TV.

I can't get the flash to come on on any setting


Find the button on the back with the lightning bolt on it. Press that button and watch the screen for either a lightning bolt or one with the letter "a" beside it. If that doesn't work, try this...go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.

Dear shaunamlynch,
Try to adjust your display properties and choose the color depth mode by sliding it up or down and choose the best color mode (Better to set the on the TRUE COLOR (Highest)). Apply and reboot!

Good Luck!

Bad film or Camera.


Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.

Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.
