Exposure Compensation Quick Tip

tim-headWhen taking this photograph of the skeletal pirate inside World of Disney at Downtown Disney, the original image came out woefully underexposed.  The reason the image was underexposed was due to the fact that the subject matter was dark and there was a very bright light right above the pirate shining back at the camera, which fools the camera into thinking the scene is brighter than it really is. 

Although underexposure can be easily corrected in Photoshop or similar image editing program, I simply set my camera’s exposure function to OVERexpose the scene by about 1 full stop and the resulting image was MUCH better.
