Dear Manfrominternet,

Allow me to suggest that you first need a working philosophy regarding exposure. None of this will make sense till you have a solid idea of which approach to exposure control will get the results you seek. I suggest you read the first 9 chapters of this treatise I wrote on exposure and development control. It may put you to sleep but I hope it will give you a sense of where you might devote your time productively.
