NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

The trick to cre­at­ing moody, dra­matic out­door light­ing is to un­der-ex­pose the am­bi­ent light, so from your start­ing point of 1/200 sec at f/5.6 and ISO100, you need to nar­row the aper­ture to un­der-ex­pose (darken) the scene. Around two stops of un­der­ex­po­sure will do – in our case, that brought our aper­ture down to f/11.
