Re: Why Exposing to the Right (ETTR) is BAD!

First of all, let me apologize for the name calling. That's just plain mean spirited.

Now, you really should also be more careful about how you go about posting a blog on another site which looks to me as if you don't completely understand what you're attacking. Like Mark, I don't really disagree with ETTR but for somewhat different reasons than you profess. They don't blow highlights for starters and that seems to be a lot of what you're saying.

Also, it's pretty much impossible to "get it right" in the camera. That's an old cliched statement that doesn't really mean much in a digital world where the data is stored as zeros and ones. ETTR people claim they're getting it right. Getting is as close as you can, while understanding your post workflow might be closer to correct, but it doesn't sound as good. It's more accurate though.

Take care and good luck.
