I found this an interesting read and very applicable with easy access to exposure compensation on the Fuji X's (for example). Basically over-ride the built in (or hand held) exposure meter which sets exposure to Zone 5 (mid grey) then adjust other tones in PS, LR, SEP, CEP, Viveza or whatever. This basically is what Ansel did by dodging and burning in the darkroom.

Read the Q&A at the end for extra info.

mind you my car's dash has just lit up with warning lights like an xmas tree, so perhaps i'm just a bit grumpy this morning.
