The flashing is the HIGH KEY area or highlights .Read camera manual on exposure for highlights also read the section on histograms to help you understand the relationship of exposure and contrast.

Why when taking a picture is the background of the picture flashing


If the image you see in the camera display flashes then it's an over/under exposure warning feature that's turned on in your camera. It's there to tell you when an area of your picture is either too dark or too bright. You can usually find a setting in the camera's menu that allows you to turn it off. Look for "Exposure Warning" in your menus or something similar.

How do i take professional pictures with the nikon coolpix l110? do i need to photoshop them or something? i dont know how to do that. i see many photos on youtube and photobucket from the nikon coolpix...


The difference between a professional and an amateur is not the camera. A pro gets paid for his pictures, an amateur does not.
Go to your local library and browse through some introductory photography books. They will explain how to do things like shoot with a narrow depth of field (blurred backgrounds).

When im in night portrait mode (auto), the photo gets completely distorted. Im sure it must be some setting im messing up... background lights for example string out if that makes sense.


the distorted photos, generally cause by:
-NOISE, the ISO should be set to 100
-your grip was shaked, so that the picture is blurry
-usage of flash is really help for night shot

Background is overexposed


So, the problem doesn't seem to be the flash if the actual subject in the foreground is exposed properly. My guess is that the background is being lit by another light source. Typically, your camera uses a flash for dark areas or what it gauges as a dark area. This doesn't adjust the background for additional light sources. For example, if you're standing outside and there's a tree covering someone that you're taking a picture of your flash will adjust to "properly" light that individual. However, because the flash was used for the main subject, the background is actually now overexposed. The overexposed background will show up as a brightly lit area because the camera had to adjust for the foreground. This will actually reverse itself when it's dark out - meaning if the background and foreground are dark, the flash will expose the foreground, but the background will be black. Hopefully, that helps you understand lighting and exposure. Now, to fix this problem when shooting, you would need to consider several options - 1. SLR camera with aperture and f-stop settings as well as compensation controls. This will allow you to control every element of the exposure, but you still need to be aware of the lighting behind the "subject" to properly expose your shots. 2. backlighting compensation - common settings on both SLR and point and shoot cameras that makes auto lighting conversions for backlighting and other common lighting issues. Test whatever options are on your camera to see what works best for your specific problem. 3. Photoshop retouching - you may take one shot with your subject exposed properly and a second shot with the background then merge the images together. 4. using a tripod to shoot without using the flash - this may give you the closest exposure to exactly what you see when looking at your subject.

Try playing with the background or lighting - ex: take pics during the day versus nite... use a white/light colored background versus something dark.

Make sure you have the flash set to "auto" or try the "red eye" setting.. I've had good luck with both of those.

Also make use of the zoom. Stand farther back and zoom in - versus being close up and NOT using the zoom.

Hope this helps :)

Picture blurry or out of focus.


Make sure your subject is within the camera's range. You should be at least 31 inches away to take a picture without the flash, and 31 inches to 8 feet away to take a picture with the flash. You can take a picture as close as 8 inches in macro mode. When you take macro close- ups, make sure you have adequate lighting (with the flash disabled). Using a tripod will help you capture sharp pictures. Make sure you hold the camera steady after you press the shutter button (until the red light starts to flash), and your subject isn't moving. If you are shaking the camera when you lock the focus, a warning icon appears in the right corner of the LCD. If you want to photograph a moving subject, you can change the shutter speed while the camera is connected to your computer. Try increasing the shutter speed. For more information, see Chapter 6. Make sure your flash is not set to flash off. When you focus on a nearby object, your picture's background may appear blurry. Try changing your focus.
