Ryan,
If you save the image, you might have a basic photography programme where you can lighten it. I am on my iPad at the moment and have done that and it is fairly easy to read. The bits that might be a bit difficult can be deduced from the context.
As xiaolu suggests, why not say what you can read or which bits are difficult.
