Photo Play

You can enhance a photo with some pretty dramatic effects, that is, if you manipulate the light levels.  Prior to the digital revolution, shooting slide film with a fully manual SLR camera, I used to achieve similar effects by slightly underexposing the image.  Often, I would focus, and set the aperture and speed according to the lighting, and then, close the aperture an additional stop for some added color saturation and depth.
