- Edit My Images
I'm finding in Africa particularly with the bright conditions - when I take portraits without flash - the subject is far darker than the background and when shooting Matrix Metering I end up with photos of people with descernable features lost in shadow. I'm shooting RAW so normally I would just lift the shadows and exposure to get the desired result in PP. My question is should I be using D-lighting or is that more a feature for jpg shooters who want the desired result upon shooting with no PP? I'm wondering if applying D-lighting reduces the ability to make selective changes later by 'flattening' the dynamics of the image? I would imagine for landscapes you would have D-lighting always off when shooting RAW for that reason.
