Tip of the day: Expose to the right! (continued)

Really want to drive this point home because it is critical to maximizing the best results from our sensors.

this as it refers to the following table:

Within the first F/Stop, which contains the Brightest Tones
2048 levels available
Within the second F/Stop, which contains Bright Tones
1024 levels available
Within the third F/Stop, which contains the Mid-Tones
512 levels available
Within the fourth F/Stop, which contains Dark Tones
256 levels available
Within the fifth F/Stop, which contains the Darkest Tones
128 levels available



    Would be a good read as well...

  2. A good read as well. At the end of the day you have to make a decision what to do. Personally I don't have a problem with blowing reds/highlights though I employ ETTR :)
