Well my approach is boringly simple, while I am waiting for the 'main event' I bang off a few exposures at different exposure values, of the area I intend to photograph and assess the histogram to check it isn't climbing the wall at either side of the scale. Nicely in the middle.

If I get it wrong I use levels in PS to put it right, although a correct exposure in the first place is better of course because correcting it in Ps means stretching the light values and loosing some range of shades.
