The other day after reading Shannon at 8foot6's blog on "Two things to help you take a better interiors photo", I played with the Exposure Compensation setting of my camera, and here's what came out. These two pictures came straight from my camera, and have not been touched up by any software.
Exposure Compensation = +0.7, ISO = 3200
Exposure Compensation = +2.0, ISO = 3200
Day and night, right? The higher EC made the room look so sunny. Love it!
