Exposure Compensation
In reply to tralalax, Jan 1, 2012

I do bracket for landscapes, but I mostly shoot action and people, hand held. Bracketing is not useful in those situations, but looking at the histograms (or flashing highlights) as you shoot and using the exposure compensation dial can really help the following shots. For instance, with a bright sky I might shoot at -1 a lot. Just don't forget to check and re-zero or adjust it when change positions, or as the light changes. Even if you're adjusting everything in post, if the sky or bright objects are blown out there isn't much you can do.
