If you use night mode with flash,,the shutter speed will be low,,,you must use a tripod unless you are very steadyand tell the person to stay still a few seconds..

If you do not use flash and there is a little light use one off the PASM modes....use the shutter priority mode,,,,and take a few pics while increasing the length of time the shutter is open,,,,,when you see in the LCD preview after a shot that the shutter speed is right then get your subject to stay still for that length of time..

It`s hard to tell you what shutter speed to use,,it depends entirely one the light available,,,you`ll have to just try and try again till you get what you want.....

If you are taking a flash shot the person must be within 10 feet for the flash to do it`s job,,,anything over that 10 feet will be darker....

Play with M mode and you will get the best from the camera.

The only problem is if the person moves.
