Underexposing Image is Always Better than Overexposing Them

As my guru always bark at me, underexposing our shots beats overexposing them during shutter release. Reason? Details are still preserved during an underexposed shot but not the latter, where blowout destroys details.

Based on my limited experience, each camera behave different with contrast management, and its up to the owner to understand this characteristics. I have recently been tuning down 1EV for each of my shot in very bright day shoot. This helps preserve details which may be blown away otherwise.

Try it!
