like the topic how to shoot night urban shots?
problems i seem to no be able to grasp.
1) if i meter for sky, i see sky but the glare on urban artificial lightings get clipped.
2) if i meter for urban area, sky black.
i remember seeing photos on CS, like some guys shots in sydney and needed to stitch em up, the sky and urban scape very nicely captured, both can see... how do i do this?
i was tryin to take the fullerton from esplande with reflection off the sea... i tried bracketing, it did help a little but im not entirely satisfied. because the glare is too much! if any one remembers the sydney guys shots were really nice. im beginning to think that he HDRed each shot.
say i wanna capture the eslapnde and the moon together, if i expose for the moon explande will become clipped, if i expose for esplande the moon not very nice, not bright enuff.
so how? help pls.
