Photo Hack: Cheating the system by "Underexposing"

Back in 2007 I took this RAW File of Perry Farrell where I employed this “Photo Hack” of “underexposing” to bring back the file in post.

The reason I underexposed was simple. I couldn’t raise my ISO or lower my aperture any further. The only thing I could do to give me a chance at a photo without motion blur was to “cheat the system” aka underexpose by two stops and bring it back two stops in post.

I continue to use this Photo Hack to this day.
