I had an opportunity to shoot a body builder for a short documentary/story.
This was a guerilla and i was just packing 2 - 1x1 leds.
I wanted to underexpose the shots to get that cut light to shape the muscles.
The shots picked up a lot of grain in shadows losing detail
This was shot with
black gamma range wide level +4
black level +2
color mode pro
shot at 200-400 iso with canon 16-35 and 24-70mm on HFR mode.
The editor was like these shots cannot be used.
Do I need to expose the image normally and then bring it down in post?
What am I doing wrong ?
What do i Do if I have to underexpose properly in future.
