It was serious business, not a fuss. in film times but it is now!
With digital recording technologies, dynamic range latitudes
are so great that as long as you consider the histogram and
the EV button on your camera as your best friends at capture,
exposure is NO MORE the ultimate criteria but rendition is.
It hurts me painfully when ever I hear/read: "good" exposure",
"well exposed" etc. How can they know how it was exposed?
I say that it is not with the exposure that the mastery lies but
with the rendition of a capture.
What do you say?
