Did you happen to take a photo at sunrise or sunset and have half of the picture beautiful and perfect, but the other half underexposed or overexposed?!

Well, starting from today you will no longer have this problem and your photos will always be perfect like postcards!

Hi everyone I am Dorpell, I am a travel photographer and in this short tutorial I will show you how to get a perfect exposured picture using a blending technique called "Bracketing".

This is all you need:

  • a CAMERA - it doesn't really matter which model. The important thing is that it allows you to choose the exposure time.
  • a  TRIPOD - or something that allows you to hold the camera steady while shooting.
  • a PC
  • Adobe Lightroom

Speaking of Adobe, I want to point out this wonderful opportunity where you can win an entire year of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. What's even better is that you can also win a Dell XPS PC. I have been using a 15-inch XPS for almost 4 years and I can guarantee you that it is one of the best ever for creators. 

Here you can find all the details:



This is a gift of mine for you. it's one of my new presets for the Lightroom that will be out soon. I used this preset in the video tutorial and you can download it for free and use it for your photos.

Now you just have to watch the video and if you have any doubt or question or curiosity, do not hesitate to write here in the comments, so we can discuss it together.

Also let me know if you liked the tutorial and if you find it useful. 
Thank you!

Hey Dorian,


Great tutorial! Do you always tend to take multiple shots of the same composition in order to achieve a perfect balance of highlights and low lights? Or is this something you reserve for special shots?

Yes you can use your smartphone to shot the pictures, but you need to bled them in lightroom on you pc or Mac.
