Instead, focus the camera manually, then secure the focus prior to taking the photo.

This is fine for casual snapshots, but if you want more professional results, you need the wider lighting options you can get by using an external flash.

If you are not familiar with cameras, consider going to a professional to ensure you have purchased an external unit that is compatible with your camera.

Now, get your camera and try these tips out. You will soon see a pleasing improvement in your photo's quality.
