Uses of Light 005.

Over & Under exposures

Over Exposed

All photos taken by Palla

The lighter the photo, the more it has been exposed to light. Mistakenly over exposing can sometimes ruin a good composition, however, purposefully, it can act as a unique effect, as seen in Palla’s photos below.

I particularly like this photo because of the pastel colours next to the dominating white.

Under Exposed

Under exposed is opposite to over exposed (obviously) meaning less light has been let into the lens than would be needed for a ‘correct’ balanced exposure.
