Subject: Re: Exposure to the right and tone placement

Yes, I bracket in either 1/3 or 2/3 incriments when needed in a changing light situation where exact metering isn't possible. I also look very carefully at the resulting exposures and try to get the lightest exposure just short of hilight clipping. But much of my time is spent shooting in the studio where I can control the scene dynamic range and add fill to open shadows and exactly meter the highlights and place textured highlights accurately.

Particularly when shooting with controled lighting (studio) it's very easy to work the highlights for exposure and then fill shadows or even decrease the shadows by using "black fill"-which is basically black flock to absorb light.

After conversion I can then tone curve as I wish although I do try to nail the shadow point in Camera Raw. A lot of the tone curves I apply must be done locally so that requires either a dual process Camera Raw method or local tone cuves in Photoshop.
