OK, Ive read enough and now I am totally confused regarding histograms, using and interpreting, exposures and brightness/highlights. Example: backyard scene with many tall pine trees, bright sunlight coming to the ground and plenty of shadows. D70 do I shot just. the point of the right side, overexpose ..do I load up on the left side to stay away from blow-outs, underexpose? Then best procedure??? with PS should I make adjustments in CR on the NEF and then into PS raw, then save to tiff, then adjust again? Thanks .
