I'm a professional photographer. I mostly photograph cars and the outdoors. Recently I was asked to take pictures at a one year old's birthday party. These things are not ideal but I've done them before so I accepted the gig.
I get there and it is not at all what I expected. Everyone is super fancy, they have a live band, blah blah blah...but the room had no lights (expect little table lamps). They also had a backdrop there that they hadn't mentioned to me before and expected me to take photos of guests on the backdrop.
I was taking pictures in a dark room with moving people and I'm using a Canon Rebel T3i. I swear I went through every setting on my camera to try to find the best one for this situation (I usually shoot in raw). It never really worked out for me.
So now I have a bunch of dark/blurry/yellowish photos and I'm having the hardest time making them look good.
Are there any tricks that you know of that could help me make these photos seem a little more professional?
