Sorry for sounding like a newbie, but could you elaborate on how to do this?
It is simply shooting in manual mode where you have a set shutter speed, ISO 1600 and a minimum aperture for the lens, say f5.6. You take the photo and the camera's LCD screen looks dark (underexposed). But that's OK if the pic is sharp! You use Photoshop or another image editing program to increase the "brightness" or exposure of the photo so that the photo can be seen clearly.
another example - a night football game I shot with the "slow" but cheap Canon 55-250IS lens. This photo was taken with a shutter speed of 1/320, ISO 1600, f5.6 and in the camera LCD screen it looked real dark. But I needed that minimum shutter speed to freeze the action. Later in Photoshop I increased the exposure and used a noise reduction program so the ISO was really at, maybe 2500 -
