Can I fix the errors later?

As for the exhibition, no, you can’t. Overexposure is not allowed in digital photography. Even if you shoot in RAW, the capabilities of RAW converters (contrary to the assurances of the developers) are very limited in terms of pulling out the knocked-out lights. Underexposure is easier to fix, although the cost will be to increase the noise level in the shadows. The correct white balance setting is not critical when shooting in RAW – you can easily change the balance when converting. Correcting the wrong white balance in a JPEG file can be a very time-consuming, though feasible, task. However, I prefer to set the white balance as soon as possible, even when shooting in RAW. This allows me to more accurately assess the exposure on individual channels using a color histogram, and in addition, my images look more aesthetically pleasing even before converting to JPEG.
