Good in-Camera Exposure – Expose to the Right!

Good in-camera exposure is essential to a great image and also cuts down on processing time & effort.   Here’s a little tip I learned early on in my photography journey that has helped me greatly using my histogram to guide me.

“Expose to the right” is an expression that you may have heard before, but my experience has been that most folks don’t understand what it means or how how to do it.

I know this does not sound like good advice, but bear with me for a minute, there is a very good technical reason for this.

The imaging sensor in your digital camera is composed of millions of little light sensors (as many as your camera has Mega pixels), and each of these sensors measures the intensity of the light that falls upon it, the camera then takes these millions of measuring points to create an image. However these sensors are not equally as good as measuring light at all levels, actually they are magnitudes more sensitive near the highlights than they are near the dark areas.
