For scenes like sunrises, it can be tricky to capture the full tonal range from the deepest shadows to the brightest highlights within one shot. That’s why many photographers take a series of bracketed shots to capture the full tonal range. Bracketed shots are essentially taking a normal exposed, an underexposed and an overexposed shot of the same scene and composition. Later in post-production, you can combine these bracketed photos into a single photo with a high-dynamic-range (HDR). There's a bracket function on most modern DSLR cameras that automates capturing 3, 5 or more bracketed

Adding keywords to your photos in Lightroom is probably not the most fun part of your photo editing workflow. I guess you would rather spend time on your creative process with making your photos come alive or be out taking more photos.

  What is it about black and white photography that is so amazing? And how can you create it? In a world full of color, we often get attracted to the colors that 'screams' the most for attention or the colors that have the greatest visual mass in a photo. But in some photos, we want the viewers to look at something else like the textures, shapes, lines or connections between two subjects. Creating great black and white images are about obtaining a good contrast.

Often when a photo comes straight from the camera, it looks flat and not just up to our expectations or what our experience was when we took it. Instead of leaving the photo sitting on your hard drive, you can make most images pop using Lightroom or Photoshop, but with help from the Google's Nik Plugins, you can take control of the editing process to another level and get the most out of each photo - and the Nik Collection delivers, no doubt about it.
