      At last SIG we talked about how overexposing a little will help get more detail. (Remember Alan’s magic with that white flower he used as an example?)
      That convinced me and have been trying to do that this past month.
      This morning on Google New feed I saw this headline and just read the article suggesting to underexpose.
      So like this hobby of ours…the rule is…there is no rule…“it depends” seems to be the answer.

        Thanks for posting. He has a good point. If you are photographing landscapes, or other non-moving subjects, you have time to check and get your histogram right up to the edge on the right. But for anything with movement you don’t often have the luxury of time if you are going to grab the shot.
