OK people, you've been instrumental in helping me become a better photographer, so I'm coming to the well yet again.
Having read "Understanding Exposure" (among others) and just finishing Ansel Adams "The Negative," I'm taking much better shots, and actually thinking about the artistic quality of what I'm trying to capture. But a new wrinkle has appeared.
Exposing to the right....
So, thusfar, I've been exposing to get my histograms looking more like a bell curve, rather than bunched to one side or another, but I've been reading here about "exposing to the right" to increase my camera's dynamic range and thus getting better, lower-noise photos at all ISOs.
Here's my question: generally, how do you properly set up one's exposure to achieve a proper right-biased shot?
And since I shoot RAW exclusively, how would I even know when I'm properly shooting the image, exposed to the right, since the histogram as I understand it, is based off of a jpeg conversion of the shot taken?
Little help in demystifying this for me.
