Another pinned: I always direct anyone asking me about my camera (and how to use it) to this site. Its all explained so simply, and taught me how to start using my DSLR. My sister printed it out and keeps it as a reference in her camera bag. Great idea!
This article gives you manual setting tips for taking good, indoor pics with a flash...without people being washed out. I used these guidelines for Christmas a couple of years ago and was really pleased. NOW I WON'T FORGET WHERE I FOUND IT! Thank you, Pinterest!
