You can be certain in photography that sooner or later there will be goof-ups. In the film days it was forgetting to load film into the camera, today it’s that one setting you forget about that risks ruining a good day. You get home and your photos lack contrast, are washed out, or you had the wrong ISO and your shots are under or over exposed. One day I was shooting with a new camera and for one reason or another all my shots were under exposed. It happens and what is important is figuring out whether the shots are worth fixing and how to fix them. Washed out photos just need more contrast (balance exposure with contrast). Fixing under exposed images shots in the Raw format is possible, you may get more noise but it’s possible. Fixing over exposed photographs where the detail in the highlights is lost is more difficult. Those highlight warnings (the “flashies”) on the camera monitor are worth paying attention to. As people learn to process their photographs, it is issues like these that come up and fixing them is a milestone on the un-ending learning curve in photography.
