I shoot in RAW, always check my histogram, and "expose to the right" to get the most detail. I then adjust the exposure when developing so that it looks right.
So I'm not sure if I know how to expose correctly. Sure I've read the books and the web pages. I think that I even understand the Zone System. I can look at a scene and realize if the dark/bright limits are too wide, and that something will be blown out or underexposed. I shoot anyway, and fix it in developing.
Is this a bad thing? Am I the only one who does this?
Any suggestions for exercises to fix this? I will always shoot "for real" in RAW at least until I reach a confidence level with exposing correctly, but exercises have a purpose.
