Preventing Photo Underexposure

Posted on: 4 June 2010

Photography is one of the most important arts known since the previous century. Experts would define it as the art of capturing or recording light. It doesn’t get any plainer than that. When you press the “shoot” button and the light flashes, you just captured a moment—in that case, the light of that moment. However, capturing light on film or digital memory is not as easy as you might have thought. Photography is like an exact art that minor changes can have a profound effect on the outcome. One of the most common mistakes is shooting pictures with low amounts of light exposure, which causes less than impressive results.

Not-so-seasoned artists would lay the blame for dark photos on improper lighting and come up with a notion that adding a flash would fix the issue. But that seems a simple solution to a less than understood problem. Of course, the inclusion of the “flash” element would seem to be the forthright answer, yet it’s an understanding in the circles of professional photographers that enhancing the amount of light is not the universal solution. There are a lot of people who have spent a long time in the photography business who can tell you that there is more to dark images than issues regarding the film and flash.
