Exposure bracketing

When there is too much contrast, shooting multiple photos with 1 EV or 2 EV steps helps to preserve highlights details and same time darker parts have less noise. You need a software to do the merging. I just use a GIMP plugin to do averaged merge, but there probably are better ways. Also pixel shift shoots four photos fast and gives about 1.5 EV more room for contrast, but it requires continuous lighting because of slow electronic shutter.

Static subjects are great because there are so many options to increase image quality far beyond what usually is possible with motion.
