A few nights ago we were out celebrating a friends birthday & I wanted a picture. The restaurant was super dark so we tried a few different shots:
Both looked terrible! One is so dark you can barely tell who is in the picture. The other is so bright we both look like we’d had a rough night. We hadn’t. We actually looked quite cute!
The first one was without a flash, the second was with the flash. We were using an iPhone 5, so it’s pretty good technology for a phone, but the room was just not great to work with. And then we got this:How? Josh took his iPhone and turned the flashlight on, then held it off to the side (about a 45 degree angle from our faces). Then he took the picture with my phone without a flash. A little filter action in Instagram brought out a few of the shadows and tamed down some shiny spots.
Is it the best picture you’ve ever seen? Heck no. But it is a thousand times better than the first two tries, and it captured the moment I wanted to remember!
