The end of a happy Thanksgiving Day. Trying to save badly exposed images. Any help/comments/critique would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance! Ria

# 3

Another view. Original was a badly exposed as the first pic. (One thing for sure ... I need to get a 67 mm. lens hood!)

Trying something different here. Not sure if it works or not. Kinda gimmicky - what do ya'll think? Ria

hi RIA you could have done one or to things the first would have been to use fill flash, the second would be to use the exposure compensation dial.

Hi, Alex ... those are both good suggestions. I am going to experiment with the exposure compensation dial on another dark scene under heavy tree cover in just a few minutes. Thanks very much for your suggestion! Ria

Thanks, Spiderdan. I really appreciate your comment!

And after the space of a few months objectivity; I'd have to agree.

Here's my attempt at highlighting the darks.

I cropped out the sky above as to rid the picture of overblown highlights then lightened grey balance then increased contrast which gave color tone to a picture that looked washed out.

Not sure what you have for equipment but if you can (1) meter off the people, (2) use your flash and adjust your exposure levels watching your histogram, you'll be ok. Take care and watchtheexposure levels of your highlights. Once these are blown you can't savethem.
