POTD: Appearing

Meet Phil. Phil is a good mate of mine that I have known for about 10 years. We kick around a fair bit in the Australian outback doing all sorts of crazy stuff but there was no fun to be had this morning as we had to start work early. It was freezing with the wind cutting through our clothes which resulted in putting more clothes on to stay warm. Didn’t help any.

I deliberately underexposed the image and had intended to make sure that it was B&W during post processing to achieve the best effect. To me, Phil looked as though he was appearing out of the darkness.

Have you ever tried to deliberately underexpose a shot to achieve a certain effect ? Would love to know if you succeeded, failed or found ways to achieve the effect without using PhotoShop.
