How many of you regularly do ETTR?
9 months ago

I've noticed that on some other forums many photographers under expose by about 1/3 stop on a regular basis. I have been told by some to Expose to the right while shooting in RAW and then to bring back in PP. Supposedly if you push to the right until you are almost blowing out highlights, you can preserve detail in the shadow areas that you might otherwise not have. My question is why do so many underexpose by 1/3 stop? Am I missing something?
