Who is shooting in -3EV anyway?

Photos tend to suck when there is no light. There has got to be some sliver of light to give some dimension to your subject!

Maybe the mother's hair is -3EV, but I'm not going to be focusing there! And if the baby's face were in -3EV of light, it would look flat and not good at all, and I would just put the camera down until we moved to better light.

Oh and this was shot with that crippled obsolete 5DII.
