“Dark and Dreary”
A few problems with this shot: There is too much clutter in the foreground (dolls, paperwork), etc. The lights are on, but the shot still looks dark because it’s shot towards a brighter light source (sunlight through the window). A better choice: shoot with the light behind you or use a tripod and a long exposure. Light meters in point-and-shoot cameras are easily fooled by a bright light source.
