-Automatic Exposure to the Right (ETTR or AETTR) is a technique of setting the exposure of a scene such that few or no pixels are are over exposed (blown out) thus maximizing the information captured without loosing information to over-exposure. This may produce a darker image but this can be corrected later in post processing. The exposure curve is thus as far to the right as possible without it being clipped.+Automatic Exposure to the Right (ETTR or AETTR) is a technique of setting the exposure of a scene such that few or no pixels are are over exposed (blown out)thus maximizing the information captured without loosing information to over-exposure, and conversely, will also ensure where possible (without over-exposing) the image will be exposed to the right, or brightened to maximize image quality. This may produce a darker or brighter imagebut this can be corrected later in post processing. The exposure curve is thus as far to the right as possible without it being clipped.
