Taking Exposure Compensation In The Other Direction...

Since I dealt with adding exposure compensation in yesterdays post I thought it was only fair to do one about under exposure.  I promise to keep this short and to the point...

This photo was taken without any compensation...



In this one I dialed in -0.3 compensation...



This one was taken at -0.7 compensation...



Here is -1.0...



And finally -2.0...



Which do you prefer?  Because I think that Nikon DSLRs tend to overexpose I usually keep -0.3 exposure compensation set as my "standard" exposure.

Lastly, here is a link to a site that explains EV Compensation much better than I can.  I hope you find the information useful and that it enhances your photography endeavors...
