Gollywop's recent post encouraged me to think instead of maximizing the sensor's exposure to light.

I need to stop thinking in film terms; they would never have led me to these conclusions.

Unless one shoots slide film, a film photo is exposed twice:
Once when shot as negative, and then in the darkroom as it is printed.

A good first exposure can help reduce image noise, but only the second exposure determines brightness in the printed photo.

ETTR is like putting a low ISO film into the camera, which is then exposed to the maximum capability of the dynamic range of the film negative. Then it goes to the darkroom, now called Lightroom
