Expose to the Right of the Histogram!

Page 7 of "Camera Raw with Adobe Photoshop CS2" by the late-great Bruce Fraser* states:

"Correct exposure is at least as important with digital capture as it is with film, but correct exposure in the digital realm means keeping the highlights as close to blowing out without actually doing so, as possible. If you fall to the temptation to underexpose images to avoid blowing out the highlights, you'll waste a lot of the bits the camera can capture, and you'll run a significant risk of introducing noise in the midtones and shadows. If you overexpose, you may blow out the highlights, but one of the great things about the Camera Raw plug-in is its ability to recover highlight detail" ... "so if you're going to err on one side or the other, it's better to err on the side of slight overexposure."

* So who's Bruce Fraser? He was an internationally recognised authority on digital imaging and colour reproduction and an author of many books on the subject. He is in the 'Adobe Hall of Fame' and the inventor of the colour management system used today in digital image reproduction.
