    I struggle with taking clear pictures of my kids in low light because they are always moving and how to best set my camera if I don’t want to use a flash.

      Hey Carrie!! I totally know that struggle! Sometimes we can push our cameras limits to get the shot without flash and others we need to add some extra light! First step would be to set your aperture to as small of number as it will go, your shutter speed at 1/200 and then your ISO will need to be really high to get your meter to zero. Depending on your camera, you might end up with a very grainy image! Which sometimes is ok. Alternatively, you can use flash but I don’t recommend the pop on your camera! It’s going to make your subject look like a ghost. You can get a pretty inexpensive external flash from amazon like this: http://amzn.to/2CmlsXK Or you can buy this little attachment that helps redirect the light from your pop up to diffuse it a bit: http://amzn.to/2By5Nb6

      I hope that helps a bit!!
