I have been stuck on this method of photography for the last week and I
am learning so much so fast. I do not think I will ever take night shots
without this method. I am amazed at the results and inspired to go out
an just shoot anything.
The other night I went to the airport and did a few maximum exposure brackets with my camera
I use AEB in the menu's and set it to take 3 shots...
1st shot at 0 exposure comp
2nd shot at -2 exposure comp
3rd shot at +2 exposure comp
With these 3 images I can put together a HDR (High Dynamic Range)
photo that will let me read the tire maker off the black tires of an aircraft
yet not have any part of the shot overexposed. It is AMAZING to just
take some shots around the house..... Here is a good example of a shot
that is not possible without the HDR (or massive grain with photoshop).
Keep the detail in the dark areas but do not overexpose the flame badly...
