When lighting a room that you want to be somewhat dim do you need to underexpose a stop or two to get the desired effect? For example in a house you may light a kitchen brightly like at a 5.6 and expose for that but another room may be lit dimmer. So using more soft light and less powerful lamps lets say you get a 2.8. If you set your lens for that will the scene come out as it did to your eye or do you need to close down?
Also what would you do in a situation where someone is watching television? There face is only lit by the image on screen so I know you would probably need to set up a light or two to give the illusion that the television is the source of illumination but again would you expose at full key or underexpose?
