A Lesson in Exposure

Barn near Edison Nebraska-8162


A barn near Edison, Nebraska 

This photo is a lesson in exposure.  It works in black and white (which it's not- I actually added a slight amount of split toning to change the feel).   This photo is a lesson for you novices who think you can fix a bad exposure by converting it to black and white.   You can't fix bad exposure by converting it to black and white! 

Stop bad photography.  Educate. Shoot often. Shoot better.
