Canon Histogram & LR 3 Histogram
I'm a Canon 7D shooter. I've set my in camera histogram to be displayed in brightness mode. I also have my camera colour space set to sRGB.
I shoot & then look at my histogram briefly to make sure there isn't any clipping & that my exposure looks good.
When I import my RAW file to LR 3 my histogram is usually either a half or a full-stop underexposed - tending to the left of the histogram.
I know what I see on my camera display is going to be different from the JPEG preview using a different colour space vs. the much larger ProPhoto RGB colour space that LR uses.
What do other shooters out there do? Do they generally always shoot one-stop over exposed to compensate for the difference?
Just wondering really as I'm a very much a get it right in the camera person which trying to minimise the time in post.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
