Grapes & Vines Light Exposure

This picture was snapped before camera’s auto light balance adjust kicked in and results in underexposure that preserved the lights without blowing them out to whites and left the darks with enough detail without getting too dark, happy fleeting victory over the camera’s auto system, could plan this effect if you know your camera’s capabilities.  You can do a lot with a cheap Canon if you observe how it reacts to changing light, how long it takes to make it’s “perfect” exposure adjustments, you can get special “filter” effects by “pushing” from one extreme to another snapping ahead of that little perfectionist camera brain.  You can so to speak, fake it out.  Now see what I can do with the picture in photoshop.
