I have been playing around with some HDR images..i noticed there are a couple of different techniques that some photogs do, or at least what i have been doing myself.

For instance you have the "in camera" HDR method, to where it snaps either 2 or 3 images and combines them in camera.

then you have the bracketing method, to where you take 3 exposures with options of -3/+3 and so on and able to shoot RAW.

Then you have the option in lightroom to duplicate said RAW images, increase or decrease their exposures then combine in whatever PP software you choose, which i tend to use photoshop.

the easiest method for me has been the lightroom method shooting RAW, as with bracketing you need to have a REAL steady hand or a tripod available, and the "in camera" option seems limited to me, as at times i like to set my exposures a bit differently. But if you prefer a different method or any of the above mentioned, i would like to know why..curious to know if one is in fact better over the other.

Any info will be greatly appreciated,

Jesse
