Hey all, quick question. In planning on using 3 exposures and creating an hdr image since I don't have a polarizer. How much should I bracket the three shots by?

TIA :p

nobody can say, need to go by the dynamic range being offered to you at the time of the shoot. It's a forever changing situation, meter and adjust accordingly.

Why only three exposures?

Turn on your histogram (in image review). Take a shot and check the histogram. Keep upping the exposure until nothing clips the left side of the histogram, then go down until nothing clips the right side of the histogram. This could be three shots at 2 EV spacing or 5 or 7. It could be 9 shots at 1 EV spacing, or 11. No way to tell till you get there.

^^^ right on

if you shoot raw you can then create even more exposures in post by adjusting the exposure then saving them as unique file names
