Even the best of photographers forget to change their settings from time to time. However, that doesn't mean all of those "mistake" images are bad. This was a prime example. I had just got done shooting some brighter subjects and I still had my settings set for that. I quickly realized this and fixed my settings... but had I not taken this shot as underexposed as it was I would have never seen this photo among all the shots that I took.
A little bit of editing was required to make the background go completely black but it was 90% there already when the photo was taken. Hope you enjoy! I really like the drama from this shot. :)
