Okay, so we want to nail the exposure, especially at high ISO's.   Question though is what should the histogram look like?   I do mostly landscapes and ETTR but NOT showing anything blown out.   If we are shooting a wedding reception and need a solid, noise free exposure on a person's face, many times other specular highlights will be blown out and might look bad on the histogram, right?  So the problem I have is I see that, freak out, and lower the exposure too much.   Guess I need to shoot less landscapes and more weddings.
