Photo Stacking

A friend of mine was out taking some photos of the Super Moon earlier this week, and found himself a bit disappointed he couldn’t get the exposure of both the sky and ground correct at the same time. If he brought out details on the moon the ground was all but black, if he brought out details on the ground, the moon was little more than a white blob in the sky. So I told him he needed to bracket exposures and stack them together to create an HDR image.

His head did a somersault, so I promised to create a video for him. And there is is below. All I show is the stacking process, each individual camera maker handle bracketing exposures in it’s own way, you’ll have to look that up on your own.
