I heard that it was better to under expose rather than over expose.
That's correct, Azuro!
Digital cameras nowadays tend to store more information in the shadows than the highlights. You can use a histogram or the "highlights" playback function on the camera to see those black flashies on the photo, where the white is pure
white. Keep those areas to only a few small pixels/areas, and the rest of your photo will be manageable in post.
I compared a 3 and 5-exposure HDR bracket with a single RAW edit on my Nikon D600 of a sunset, and there's no noticeable difference. All the time I would spend using a tripod, bracketing and merging to HDR later was for nought. See the image here: Corgerz
, my advice would be to use levels and angles. All of the images here are looking good! Good exploration of space and such, now try shooting up, down, high and low. Close and far. See what you can do.
Keep up the good work!
