    Sometimes I have to take pictures of illegally parked vehicles at
    night. Whenever I do, the license plates get washed out by the flash
    on my Canon Powershot S30. I haven't been able to come up with a
    solution that will let me capture both the vehicle and its license
    plate.
    Can anyone give me any hints?

    Try holding a folded tissue or white handkerchief over the flash window
    when you take the shot. That should greatly reduce the reflection from
    the plate.
