In this week’s episode, we discuss how to bracket for perfectly exposed landscape photos. Perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of landscape photography is determining how to properly expose your photos when lighting conditions are less than ideal. These difficult lighting conditions are rather common when it comes to landscape and outdoor photography with the most frequent occurrence being a bright sky with a dark foreground. The dynamic range in today’s cameras has never been better, but even the best cameras out there still struggle with properly exposing areas of extreme light and extreme dark within a single image, and this is where exposure bracketing helps.
In this video I review what exposure bracketing is, how to use it, why you should use it, and when you should apply this in camera technique to your landscape photos. The process may seem a bit intimidating at first, but once you try it on your own you’ll quickly realize just how easy it really is. You’re basically just taking a series of photos with different exposure settings applied to each. I usually take three photos when I exposure bracket, one that’s underexposed, one that’s “properly exposed” and one that’s overexposed. Once you have your photo bracket series complete, you blend the images together and watch the magic unfold!
There’s multiple different ways to blend the images and in this video I use Lightroom to merge my three bracketed photos together to create one perfectly exposed landscape photo.
