In this movie I wanted to explain the difference between using the Exposure and Brightness sliders. The first section shows a basic introduction where I use the Exposure slider first and then fine-tune the remaining Basic panel settings. I then go on to demo the use of a strong negative Exposure adjustment. This is followed by an example of why an Exposure led image adjustment will produce an image with better image detail in the midtone to highlight areas compared to a Brightness slider led adjustment.
