A photographer’s goal is to shoot the image correctly in camera. Editing images (known as post production) frequently takes more time than the actual shoot. Sometimes we have to shoot under lighting conditions that aren’t ideal. I use a light meter on the shoot to help me make sure the images I’m shooting is within the dynamic range of the camera I am using. Like many photographers.
I will sometimes bracket a shot to help compensate for shadows or other distractions. However, every bracketed shot means there are three (or more) images that must be composited and edited, and that takes time. I prefer to spend a little more time on the shoot so I can spend less time in post production, and that means faster turnaround for the client.
