Something Iíve been asked a number of times by workshop participants is what method works best at controlling the exposure in a photograph. Well like all things in life there is more than one way to skin a cat. You have to find your won preferred way, but for me, I often processing one RAW file twice, for the highlights and shadows. I then blending them to ensure a suitable (subtlety handled) effective dynamic range.
I could of course use a graduated filter, or bracket my exposure in high contrast environments and edit two raw files, but generally I like to focus on the method that is quickest at getting me to the end objective, but maintaining the quality Iím looking for. I personally like to focus (pun intended) on the image and stating a Ďbest methodí would of course be a tad too arrogant, not forgetting limiting your available options for creativity...So I will shut up now and leave you by introducing my new podcast... http://vimeo.com/11461679

Note: Oh, by the way, my Malham workshop is now full, but I will be announcing two new dates for workshops in Cornwall this August and the Lake District for the Autumnal colour goodness...

Note: Iím also offering a charity evening bluebell workshop this Friday Evening the 7th May from 18.45 in some bluebell woods near Ilkley with 100% of my fee goes to the Yorkshires Air Ambulance. If you are interested please reserve a place by sending me an email through my www.landscapeinspired.com
