Most probably you have incorrectly set your camera to a Camera Record mode other than Auto.
If there is not enough light and you are trying to photograph the scene without flash, (eg. by setting your camera mode to a mode that is programmed not to use flash) then the camera has to compensate for the missing light by keeping its shutter open for a longer period of time so as enough light comes into its sensor.
If your hand shakes during that time, you get blurry images.
Check your camera settings. The Twilight scene mode gives you slower shutter speeds to capture dark,
night scenes, but you need to stabilize the camera on a tripod or something, depending on the level of light of the scene you want to photograph. The Twilight Portrait, on the other hand, is the same as Twilight with the addition of
flash is used to illuminate a person or foreground subject as well as capturing a night
background. This mode also keeps a long shutter time for capturing the night background.
For taking pictures of people, I would suggest you use Auto or Portrait mode where the camera will automatically use fast shutter speeds and flash (if dark).
Hope this helps.
