Very cool tutorial. I constantly have the issue of areas being either washed out or under-exposed.

While it isn't of a building I saw a sunset in my backyard today and messed around with editing. Not bad for my first try.

I began playing around with bracketing tonight and quite frankly I'm struggling a bit. It took me some time to figure out how to do it on my D750 but here's what I've got. The 1st image below was shot on Auto with no flash.

1/10 sec.
ISO 6400
F3.8

1.


The 2nd photo was a bracketed shot consisting of 5 shots merged in photoshop cc (latest version)
ISO read "ISO-AUTO Hi1.0
f6.3

Brackets were up and down increments of .3 on the F stop.

The only thing I can figure is the ISO and I have no idea what Hi1.0 is and I cant figure out how to change it while trying to bracket. The below photo is "grainy". Any suggestions?

EDIT:

And so I dont have to answer the question, NO that isnt a bomb. Its a 1926 lightbulb tester taken from an East German factory thats been repurposed into this:

Nevermind, I think I've figured it out. I changed the ISO to 6400 manually through the menu and then shot 5 shots with a difference of 1 up and down. The 1st photo below is the bracketed the 2nd is the Auto pic.

Neither of these pics has had any imaging processing. I like the sharpness of the Auto but the bracketed seems smoother and much more like what I'm actually seeing with my eye. Any thoughts? And yes I know the house is a mess - the maid is coming on Thursday...

If you're using a tripod to take pics of stationary subjects, force it into 100 or 200 ISO and let it expose 5-10 seconds instead of 1/10 at 6400.

You're using high ISO inappropriately. You lose the dynamic range and color quality when you use a high ISO. It's great if you're shooting a show in a bar or you're a journalist. If the subject is moving, you've got no choice but to shoot it fast.


This was at ISO 6400 for 1/6 sec, handheld. This is a very high quality picture relative to the alternative of blurry mess you'd get from hand holding the camera for 1.5 seconds at ISO 400.

At 100:


At 3200:


Not as good looking, but very much usable. If it was shaky where i was taking the pics or the boats were moving, I don't have a choice.
