Overexposure

In traditional photography, overexposure is a term used to describe the process of exposing film to too much light, which results in the photograph being too bright. In digital photography, where there is no film, overexposure refers to a white-looking or washed-out image (overexposed image). This generally happens when a digital photo or video was shot with too much light on the subject. If you’re shooting with the wrong camera settings, the result can also be overexposed images.
