A series of techniques enabling a photographer to capture a wider range of proper exposure in all areas of a scene than can be recorded by a camera in one exposure alone. It is achieved by making a number of different exposures, usually through bracketing, to properly expose the brightest areas, the mid-tones and the darkest areas. The pictures (in this case, three) are combined using an image-editing application like Adobe PhotoShop into one image that shows detail in each of the areas.Photo Tips
