Oops, I meant ETTR = Expose to the Right

This has been a practice almost from the beginning of shooting RAW digital files to maximize file quality and avoiding the increased noise when you lift shadows.  This is easiest to see in a file that has limited dynamic range not covering the whole histogram.  The file that started out lighter and darkened will always have less noise than a file that is lightened or even the file that is not adjusted because of where noise is in a digital file.  The ETTR practice needs a different approach and I like to think about capturing the best data to be processed into a final image.
