Pretty wrong imo

Exposing to the right is, according to me and everyone I know, to go as close as you can before clipping highlights.

Wow. I guess I'm ignorant.

Well you're just confused because many erroneously say you have to pull shadows back up after ETTR because they don't really understand how to do it right or basic metering that well. Read this post as well as the ones by The Davinator and you'll understand it better.


I guess it should be called then "Exposing to protect the right."

This is where my brain is.. Maybe I'm dyslexic.

When I choose "Highlight Weighted Metering" on my D500, the histogram is pushed to the left.

Thanks for the link!  I've been enlightened!
