How do you "Expose To The Right" (ETTR)?
Feb 17, 2014

I understand the concept of ETTR but how do you shoot ETTR?

  • How much do you expose it by? +1 sop or more??
  • Does ETTR affect BOTH RAW and JPEG?

I see a lot of exif data that the Exposure compensation is dialed down to -.3 to as much as -1

ETTR definition per Wikipedia and DPR:
