    If you really want, can go up to over 10 images since dynamic range can be as high as 20 stops. Then again it all depends what you want to achieve in the end. I would say if you have a tripod, 3-5 images spaced 2 stops apart each is a good start.

    U need a pretty stable tripod to get all 3 exact frames. If your cam has built in bracketing, I think you can try and use it?

    as i've heard that having more frames of different exposure (5-7 frames) would give you better results thus bracketting wouldnt really do the job since it only does 3 shots... my tripod isn't exactly very stable as i cant fathom the thought of carrying an almost 2kg tripod in my backpack lol

    i guess i'll have to invest in a remote shutter for starters ^^

    No choice mah, weight is always a major trade off in photography.

    Hi hokokhua,

    Yah tripod is no.1 for taking 3~5 different exposure for the same scene. Raw file is not necessary, coz raw file is already a high dynamic image. CS and Element are needed for enhancement but a stand alone software called "photomatix" can do all for you. Hope this will help you....

    how do u remove the EXIF from the file so that i can work on only 1 raw file while generating the +/- 3 stops?

    i believe you can choose to do so or not when saving the file to JPEG =)

    I THINK ACR cannot do it. I used silkypix and there is an option for it.

    BTW, if your camera's DR is not good you cannot go -3 stops without some serious banding. I think currently only the s3pro can rescue a 3 stops overexposed highlights with proper graduations.

    Hi everyone,

    Just to share some of my takes. These 2 images were actually shot during midday. It was hot and sunny. My idea was to turn it around and make it look surreal. It was made possible by shooting in HDR.

    They were taken in 3 different exposures: -2EV, 0EV, +2EV, later tone blended in Photomatix and later further 'massaged' with final adjustments made in Photoshop.

    1.


    2.



    Sometimes, HDR is handy when shooting sunsets when you dont have a ND grad filter but nothing beats having a good filter around.
    3.


    Overall, shooting in HDR works best when its impossible to get as much tonal range (from the lightest to the darkest shade) from a single image. e.g. Hot and sunny or when its about to rain.

    I think the basics of photography still apply when shooting with HDR. Composition + Lighting + Post production.

    To further illustrate my point, see these websites for samples/inspiration:

    Do we need to erase the EXIF before merging to HDR??
