While I use an incident meter to prevent losing highlight detail with transparency film and digital sensors, there is a technique I also use that is available to digital shooters that can insure highlight detail and at the same time promote the generous exposures that benefit digital images. It’s simple. It’s the histogram that can be made available on many digital cameras’ viewing screens. True, it’s often a histogram for the jpeg image, not the raw image, but it’s useful in allowing you to use the most generous exposure that does not block highlights. Just give the most generous exposure that doesn’t push the brightest area of the histogram off scale. Is there anybody else that uses this technique?
