My tip: shoot raw. Check this rather hopeless picture. No post-processing, just converted from camera default.

Can you bracket in raw mode? Would you need to? I'm wondering if a PS action can be used to merge highlights of one image and shadows of another automatically this could be an answer for me.:idea:

yes you can bracket in raw. and yes you can combine the shadows and hi-lights from the same raw image. ck this out. it's rather simple. it also saved my butt at the first airshow i shot.

Yes, you can shoot with the bracket function in RAW. But you can also do the "bracketing" by converting the same raw a few times with different exposure compensation, and then merge the jpegs. I guess that would be better for action shots, ie sports. I've never tried to merge myself, but I've seen the results some others have posted and it's surely something on my "what-to-learn-next-list".

When bracketing is done in raw does it change the shutter speed or aperture?
