Mengenal Exposure Bracketing

Get to know Exposure Bracketing

Usually when you want to photograph an object but the light doesn't support it, it's too contrasting with the object. If you force it, the results will be too dark or too light. So, you can use several techniques, such as using a GND filter or using the exposure bracketing technique.

The exposure bracketing technique is taking several photos with different exposures. So for example you can take several photos from light to dark. From these three photos, you can combine them to get a photo that looks like the original condition visible to the eye.

ISO 220, f/6.3, f/60 sec
ISO 100, f/6.3, 1/125 sec

ISO 900, f/6.3, 1/60 sec

You can activate the BKT function on your camera by setting an exposure difference of 2 stops. Then activate continuous shooting mode so you can immediately take several photos in a row and they are not too different so that when combined the photos remain sharp.

If your camera has an HDR feature, you can use it, it is more practical but the photo editing results are limited.

You can combine the three photos using Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop. The result is like this:

The results of this combination produce colors that are as seen by the eye, there are details in the rock ruins and trees, the color of the sky matches the original color.
