I usually underexpose my photos. It often means losing more good shots than is necessary, but it does mean crisp images. It also means visually interesting images. Photograpy isn’t about capturing what you see with your eyes. It’s about capturing a specific subject in greater detail and you would ever otherwise care to look. It’s also about obscuring the true nature of the subject. If you want truth, look with your eyes. This photo is interesting because the center of the flower suggests depth and interest, but it’s impossible to really tell. The image melts away before you. Compare the top half of the frame to the bottom. These are radically different compositions and uses of light. The dark empowers the light, and obfuscates the truth of the image.
