What is dynamic range and why should you care? Well, if you want the best possible image quality, it all starts with accurate exposure, especially with digital capture. You could be accidentally throwing away highlight and shadow information by relying on your camera’s histogram. Profiling your camera and lens combinations gives you the best possible opportunity to make educated decisions about exposure. One of the benefits of this is less time spent manipulating your images in post, and more time shooting. Sounds good, right?
