Here are a few images of how digital (small sensor ones) cameras should not be shot : underexposed, “pushed”, with no details in the shadows .. I am thinking that if my film bodies loaded with some real Ektachrome / Elitechrome or even, dear loved one in Heaven now – Kodachrome 64 – did not allow me to come up with exactly this crushing of things obscure, i’d have stopped shooting film / slides and opted for the almost any digital, and the right tools ..
Few images below from my rediscovered with love LX5 : All at EV-1, MF zone focused at F4.0, metered for the light / highlight (veryyy wroooong, i hear some say) and then metering locked .. So i’ve shot them to the left. I always shoot my digital cameras to the left – always believing that they severely overexpose at default – at least some of them and to my eyes.
See if you can quickly tell where this is ..
