Have you ever played around with bracketing? For those that think I’m speaking latin, bracketing is when you take a series of photos and basically mesh them together in Photoshop using the parts from each photo that you want to. It can create a more dramatic look. I haven’t really done much bracketing, but when we were at Mac Mac Pools recently, I took a shot of the same scene going up and down a few stops. I started with the three images below.




By combining these together and using the parts I wanted to, I created this…

Kind of cool, huh? I’d like to experiment with it a bit more, but it does make for a fun, creative outlet. Have you ever tried bracketing? Digital photography school has a great (and easy) tutorial on it.


Linking up with Jennifer @ Studio JRU for Sneak Peek Friday. I encourage you to come and link up your creativity this week!
