      Indoor photo shoot easily be photographed to produce roots, especially flash photography in a dark environment with. With flash makes the already dark scenes become more dim, you can imagine the effect of shooting. Therefore, we should turn off the flash, change to a bright scene and higher ISO sensitivity. You can also use a large aperture and a slower shutter to shoot.     
      2.Use spot metering to ensure that the exposure   
      Background relatively dark environment, the background light than dark figure, if you want to take advantage of the camera's global metering mode to shoot, too bright because it will lose a large part of the details. So we had better choose spot metering to shoot, the metering point in a person's face on the accuracy of the exposure to the whole body.     
     3.Use a triangular composition family portrait  
     In many cases, such as shooting team photo, graduation photo and other persons more time, people can be divided into several rows of shooting, do not pay attention to the number of each row of the same composition can be used to learn the triangle commonly used patterning layout shoot structure.

   6.Shoot more for several Perspective    
   Perspective effect for shooting also has a great impact on the rules of the photo shoot and the whole family has been unable to meet the current level of appreciation of the people.
