idk why it was so dark either, the lights are on in this room and the flash went off.
Well, I think I can solve at least this portion of the mystery. I now sell digital cameras for a living and I am forever telling my customers to
disable the flash in rooms where the lights are on. Failing to do so inevitably results in a situation wherein the subjects in the foreground are
illuminated, whilst those in the background are darkened. This results from the camera using the flash as its sole source of light, so that only those
subjects immediately in front of it are illuminated. Next time you go to take a picture, disable the flash if you have fairly good light (such as from
overhead lights). You'll get more natural lighting than you will by using the standard pop-up flash atop most digital cameras.
I think that this "washing out" phenomenon, combined with the fact that it's a creepy Russian doll, make the photo seem more ominous than it is.
Hope this helped.
