Day 6 : Too Dark Just Right Too Light Bracketing

Today’s challenge in the missing pages column at photo.net was bracketing. I read it, and then reread it. And still couldn’t figure out the why and wherefore in today’s digital world. I can understand it for the film world – now very much a niche – but digital? Still, I persuaded Henry to come out and play and Horace came along after a battery charge.

I have also been reading some of the “popular” – or should that be noisy model and photographer forums here in the UK. And very much reached the conclusion that it is something I can miss. I know about the “join and change from within, one photo at a time” mindset, but I cannot summon up the energy. And as part of rehabilitation, I am trying to send out positive energy rather than be overwhelmed by a tsunami of negatives. If anyone knows some good blogs or sites like photo.net, please do let me know.

But here are the straight from camera pictures. The only work has been resizing for the web.

What have I learned – more practice with Horace. Not to bother with bracketing and get the same results using the Ev dial on Horace. And to start thinking more about the why and wherefore of the pictures I take when I have finished doing the missing pages articles.
