All my photographs had been underexposed, a few of my shoppers had been blurred out, and the opposite footage had been simply black. It was a horrible night time and a foul determination. I attempted to brighten up and sharp the photographs, however as soon as I print it, it was completely ugly. The noise and grain on every picture was hideous! One after the opposite, photographs had been printed and weren’t being bought. Cash simply happening the drain! I needed to give them away without spending a dime.
