Exposure Basics, lesson three?

This thread is not so much a continuation, as a relativation of a previous thread that goes into the technicalities of correct exposure:


While it is important to know and apply the basics of (correct) exposure, the only thing I want to say is that the technicalities have a relative value, and emotional impact has another value.

Let me just illustrate that with two incorrectly exposed images.



The language of our photographic art even has developed terms to cover up that kind of mistakes.  Those euphemisms are "Low Key" and "High Key".

My point ?

* Learn the basics.

* Learn to apply them

* Then think outside the box of basics and learn when NOT to apply them.
