Photo Quickie: Low Light
Even though our eyes can see the subtle changes of light, the camera can not with out adjusting your setting; which could increase digital grain. If possible in low light situations use a flash or other added light if grain could be a problem and must be kept to a minimum. Try to reflect the light off of something other than the subject to reduce the harshness of the flash. For nature Photographs a 5″ x 7″ piece of white cardboard is perfect and can fit right into your camera bag.
