As a way to achieve proper exposure, there is a concept called expose to the right. In this free video, world renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant explains the concept, which basically means giving extra exposure to your image without overexposing it. After you capture an image, you should consult your camera’s histogram and make sure there is readable data on the right side of the graph without having all that data piled up on the right. Ian points out that the idea is to avoid visual noise, which can bunch up in the shadows. Therefore, try to expose to the right, and you will reduce the visual noise of your file images.
