Bracketing landscapes

When bracketing either 3shots-5shots etc then finally making your composite image in post, what do you do withe bracketed photos now you have the composite image? I noticed that the bracketed shots are normally 60mega
And the composite image up to about approx 150mega (Aurora hdr), this seems an inordinate amount of data to keep. I am therefore considering keeping only the O ev bracketed and the composite only. What do you all do with your bracketed shots.
Kind regards Mike

Re: Bracketing landscapes

Buy a new external hard drive :-)


(I find that going back to old photos some years later means I can do more with them, or use a fresh approach. So, I keep the originals and the processed results, but not intermediate files in general. I do have problems with hoarding, though. Burying bones, mostly).

Re: Bracketing landscapes

I normally "develop" an image to a final state and then only keep that one.

However if there is further potential for an alternate post production to something significantly different, then the original RAW files are kept.

Re: Bracketing landscapes

Hi Graham and thanks, I have been using Aurora hdr for my bracketed shots for both focus and exposure which can lead to as many as 9 shots all about 60mb. After combining them in Aurora there can be a final image of 120+mb. This can be quite a large amount of data for one image! Moving on I was considering keeping only the final Aurora and one image of the correct exposure, and the focus point about a third in? Any thoughts anyone?

Re: Bracketing landscapes

Hi Kami, I have 3 G-drives @2tb 3tb 4tb all over half full. 99% are my wildlife shots, I was considering a fourth just for landscapes.
Kind regards mike.

I was wondering if you were talking about the E-1 DSLR or the OM-D E-M1 model?

Re: Bracketing landscapes

You need to change the subject header ! I still use my E1 occasionally.


If you want this thread MOVED, then a message to an Admin might work :-)



Oh, and I've multiple external hard drives too. Just bought a 5GB one for more photos !
