Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Indoor photos are too dark and skin tones orange-ish

In indoor areas that are not bright, my photos come out slightly dark (or a lot) and skin tones are orangy. I felt the flash was not strong enough, so I purchase a small slave strobe (Quantaray MS-1) for additional external flash. It actually makes my picture darker! I figure the slave flash is too bright and the camera is compensating now for too bright a picture and giving me an even darker picture.

I have tried changing the Image Brightness (adjusting exposure) on the camera, but there is no change.

I just want a normal colored picture, not dark, with good skin tones. I take a lot of pictures in my church, and at my place of business....and having this problem both places. Help. Charlotte

I have the same problem at my church with the indoor lighting on my camera. I'm able to get it work by putting the whole thing on manual and adjusting the lighting settings that way.

Histogram shouldbe on or off on lumix camera


The histogram is a tool that is useful to the photographer that shows a graph that represents how much color or bright and dark areas are in a photo. If you're looking at a photo that has a larger portion of the histogram graph on the left, it means there's a lot of dark / black tones - and that details in those areas are likely lost. The same holds true if the graph was heavy to the right edge - but it would mean there is a lot of bright or whites. Subtle details in these areas would also be lost. You can use the graph to adjust your exposure so that these details are visible. A wedding dress that lacks the fine lace details because the whites were "blown" (over-exposed) lacks interest when compared to a photo that preserves the details. Here's a link to a site with some great info in general - and about histograms specifically. Check it out.

Tinker with exposure settings to move the large areas of the graph away from the edges - this will show the details. You can switch the histogram off and on as you see fit.

My skin is fair.Would sand/nude be the best colours to purchase?


When choosing a concealer, you should consider both consistency and color. If you are covering undereye circles, you should choose a concealer that provides major coverage. Yellow-toned products are the best for covering up undereye circles while orange-based tones blend best into dark or black skin. Choose a concealer that is one shade lighter than your foundation. Remember that getting a shade that is exactly the same as the color of your skin tone will make your concealer too dark once you have applied foundation and/or powder on your face. However, if you choose a concealer having a shade that is too light, you risk looking like a raccoon.
Trying out testers on department store counters would really be of great help. Remember that concealers are products that are non-returnable.

Do I need to use an eye cream? Can my facial moisturizer work under and around my eyes just as well?


All Hormeta moisturizers can be used around the eyes. However, the skin around the eye area is a lot different than the rest of the face. There are no oil glands there, so skin tends to get dry and wrinkled. Also, the skin of the eye area is much thinner and can't absorb heavier products. A separate eye cream should be used to solve specific problems around the eye such as fine lines and dark circles.

When I take indoor pictures, the images have become progressivley darker and I have to adjust the white balance to +2 and the flash to almost plus 2 just to get a picture where it used to take great...


Make sure your battery is fully charged. If the battery is not fully charged your flash may not fire at the brightness you need to take a well exposed photo. Also, check your ISO settings. Try taking photos at a higher ISO when the subject is in a dark area. Experiment with the ISO. Good Luck!

Why do some of my pictures come out dark or with shadows?


Your Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does not have a flash. If pictures are coming out dark, it's because there wasn't enough light in the surroundings when the picture was taken. Remember, it's important to take photos in brightly lit surroundings. When taking pictures indoors, make sure that the room has bright lighting. For best results, take pictures during daylight hours with a combination of indoor and outdoor light, preferably near a window.
