I am about to learn to be proficient with the Zone System (Landscape / D800e). At first glance is seems pretty simple .. find a relevant highlight, determine visually if it is Zone 6 or 7 and add + one or two stops after zeroing the manual exposure meter on that highlight.

Do you approach it like that? How is this better than expose to the right without clipping? How does this effect bracketing for HDR?

And finally, if the Zone System is the way to go, have you a book to recommend or an online tutorial? Thank you, Gary
