I'm not anywhere near good at photography so please help.



First, I just moved into a house with a ton of windows, so every time I try to take a picture, there's a ton of bright light in the background, is there a way to make pictures look good like that so my kids don't have halos and washed out faces?



Also, I have one really tan kid with dark hair/eyes and one really pale kid with light hair/eyes, and when I take pictures with a flash, my pasty guy like...eats all the flash and glows and my daughter looks all shadowy, lol. Can I fix that?



TIA

Have the windows in front of them if possible? :)



And I'm the same with my kiddies, total opposite haha. What type of camera is it? I'm not sure how to fix that one. I haven't had it happen yet.

You could use a white sheet over the window to diffuse the light.

There's windows on every wall. Which I love, but I haven't gotten many good pictures since we moved, lol. And it's a canon powershot sd790. It is old and nothing special. I don't try to take professional looking pictures, just pictures where I can make out my kids' faces, haha.
