The idea most photographers have learned is to expose for shadow
detail, but with digital the opposite is true (so I've read and come
to believe) and think a lot of people do not yet understand the nature
of digital's dynamic (tonal) range. Most digital photographs would
improve with more attention to the highlights, with the lower values
easily "opened up" via histographic control.

I think I'd better stop now, my inexperience with digital cameras is
beginning to show.

 {snippage}... The only problem I have had with digital is its
tendency to blow out
highlights; hence I usually shoot at .7 EV in contrast. Mark does
this with
his histogram and light meter, it seems from his last post. But he's
uber techie. Mark, you gotta teach me that method. Or at least write
it in
a book :)
