Re: Exposure

It's too long to explain here but if you understand how a CMOS sensor handles brightness information, then you will expose to the right. As much as 50% of the information can be retained in the brightest stop all the way down until the shadows have minimal information retained in them. As you can see, it doesn't average exposure information like you might expect. This way you bring up the shadows in PP. This applies to low light exposure and not to middle exposure scenes. Look up "exposing to the right" and more than likely you will find some information.
