Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Set your exposure compensation to -2.0
Posted on Dec 25, 2007
A) Place the camera on a tripod (or a steady surface - e.g. a chair)
b) Select P mode
c) Focus and take the shot.
Most probably, with the above settings, the camera will select a longer exposure without flash, lighting the scene properly (i.e. making it appear as night, as it should be). However, know that this will also create motion blur of moving subjects (the kids, in this case). If you want to avoid this, you must use flash in slow sync mode. Press repeatedly the flash button, until you see the "slow" indication on the screen (where the flash info appears, down left). Again, the camera should be on a steady surface.
If your pictures are again too bright, it means that the Exposure compensation is for some reason set to +. Use the appropriate button (check the manual if you don't remember which one it is) to fix it
