My photo is too light or white

This issue can be caused by one of these four factors: 

  • shooting at a very low temperature
  • photos hasn’t been shielded properly during development
  • the lighten/darken slider of the camera was on « light »
  • if using a flash, the subject was shot too close, as the built-in-flash will only be effective at a range from 1 to 2,5 meters (3,3 to 8,2 ft).
