    Tips need for Nikon D750 shoot in a low light condition with backlit
    I chose this particular image because the original was very dark. I decided not to convert or try to correct the background colors although I dialed down the saturation on their faces.

    The problem with editing images that are high ISO and underexposed is you can introduce artifacting. That's when areas within the image start to take on a squarish appearance. I could have used an adjustment brush and added more noise reduction to their clothing and the background, but my attention was primarily on their faces. In fact, when I used Nik Dfine for noise reduction, I wound up lowering the amount since the photo was way too creamy (smooth) and the artifacting was more noticeable. It's a juggling/balancing act when you encounter artifacting.

      Hi-

      Thank you for your tips. I don't have budget to buy a lens with f2.8 now but I will consider getting one. Thank you for the reminder of shutter speed vs lens.

      Thanks for uploading the files, it gave me a chance to play with a d750 file. You have gotten some good advice about metering back lit shots. Just one stop would have helped greatly from 125th to 60th. If you are going to be taking this type of shot infrequently don't forget about a prime lens. Looking forward to seeing more shots.

      Cindy, Good tip about de-saturating the faces.

      This was my favorite shot. It's very noisy but still a nice photo:

      I edited this post to reduce saturation once I saw how it looked online...
