Why my pictures are too dark or too light?

I am shooting on a snowy scene with default settings and I would like to end up with an underexposed image with gray snow and darkened subjects, like the one to the left. However, it is still too bright.

  • The best way to fix this is to dial in a bit of positive EV Compensation. This setting is represented by a +/- button or menu option in your camera. Dial it up +1 and everything should look right—just be sure to set it back to 0 the next time you are out and about shooting or your images may be too bright.
  • Upping the EV Compensation will wash out the background, so the best approach here is to activate your camera's flash to illuminate your subject. The trickiest part is to get the right distance so that your subject isn't washed out and the right amount of background is shown—experiment a bit and you'll be able to capture natural looking images that are aided by a bit of fill flash.
