For indoor or party scenes, there are couple of things you can do to the camera to best optimize it.
For one, you can change your mode dial to SCN, like most scenes, the scene mode does have a party or even a candle light scene. So you can choose party press set, this will optimize the camera for party scenes.
Now you do not have control over white balance, I can use the flash and I would recommend doing so is pop the flash, and by default, the flash is set to slow synchro, which is fine, because you want to get some of that ambient lighting.
Also you may want to make sure that you are focus is set to the center point, surprise the quick menu button of that down for a second, and you may be on face detect. But if the camera can not detect faces because the lighting is to low then what you want to do is go to one area, with the auto focus set into one area, you can press the quick menu button and you have this brackets in the center, which allow you to focus on the subject face. Press the shutter button half way and the recompose the image. Now if you want to have control of your white balance and ISL what I would recommend doing is not to use the same mode, but instead turn your mode dial to program.
Here I can set my white balance, just go ahead and press the quick menu button for a second. Move over to white balance and go down. If you are going to use the flash, go with flash, if you are not going to use the flash go with halogen to compensate for the hygiene lights of the text and lights in the scene. In order to maintain a fast shutter speed then we need to increase the ISL.
So let us go over to ISL and turned that up to 400, press the quick menu button. Now my white balance is properly set and my ISL is set. I do not want the flash to brightly illuminate the four grounds of the image. You can go to the background completely dark. So leave you ISL high even if you use the flash and press the up navigation button or the exposure compensation button three times to get to the flash exposure value.
And then move that down a bit especially if your subjects are closer to the camera. You do not have the subject come out to would it like. If the subject is further away of if, you’re taking a picture in a long table with people and you may want to increase the power of the flash. But in this case, it is pretty close to the subject. You want to get them more light, but we also want to leave the shutter open long enough to expose for the ambient light. Then press set, now my flash is not going to be to powerful, the flash is also set to slow synchro .You can do that by pressing the flash button on the right and choosing slow synchro at the button. Press set, this will allow the flash to pop but the shutter speed to stay open long enough to expose for the ambient light.
Now the reason why I want my ISL a little bit higher, even if I am using the flash is because I am using the slow synchro, I do not want the shutter speed to be to slow. Because I am after handholding the camera, so now with my ISL at 400 my white balance set to tungsten or flash depending on whether I’m using the flash amount. In this case, I am using a flash so it is set to slow synchro and the power of the flash is turn down just a little bit. We had impressed the shutter button half way, remember focus on your target then recompose the image and press the button the rest of the way to take a picture.
