Bracketing Gone Wrong

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, HDR, Prescott

Some days, me and my bracketing do not get along. I guess since my new Nikon D90 does it more automagically than my previous D3000, I’ve gotten a little lazy about checking my shots after taking them. Here’s an example of what can go wrong when you don’t (but I still loved the scene anyway).

These scene is really nice. It is a tad on the dark side, but that could just be the representation of the weather given the clouds. Aside from the blown out clouds… So how does the 90 work diff than the 3000? I’m a cannon guy so. 🙂

Basically the D90 will take 3 brackets at a time whereas with the D3000, you have to change the settings for each bracket manually. So as I did that with my old camera, I’d see that a shot was too blown out and re-adjust my brackets, whereas with the D90, I just fire them off without thing about it. Lesson learned. 🙂

Not bad at all for a mis-fire! 🙂 – Me and my Promote Control don’t get along – at all. It is the best invention ever when it works – which is definitely not all the time.
