Zebra is excellent for highlight clipping control

Thanks everyone!

I've always under exposed after watching many post processing tutorials on YouTube but I've always felt there was so much noise and I wasnt doing something right

With ETTR, are you aiming to get the histogram peaks closer to the right than them being central before the whites start clipping then

If you use raw, the camera histogram should be clipped about 1.5 stop or maybe a tad more to the right. This is because the raw files have more highlight latitude than the jpg files, which the histogram is read from.

The more exposure, the less noisy results when shadows are recovered.

If you use Zebra stripes, and set the value to about +108, the zebra pattern will show up when you pass the highlight clipping range for the raw files.
