Blowing highlights on purpose...
3 months ago

I was playing around with my A7 today, testing out peaking with my 50mm Lux ASPH wide open. The gentleman in the picture was backlit, and the background was unremarkable anyhow, so I decided to overexpose (by a lot) and blow the highlights on purpose, just messing around. Then I applied a quick preset I have made in Lightroom, and I sort of liked the look. I was just wondering if anyone else ever does this and how other people might feel about it.
