    I shoot only 35mm and medium format. The former in particular tends to encourage bracketing, whether in b&w or color. I also tend to segregate my shooting styles and subject matter according to the format. With 35mm I tend to shoot rapidly, casually and make lots of insurance shots. The subjects are often people.

    I bracket with impunity when shooting for Diafine since adjusted development is impossible. This is essential to my nighttime photography. As long as there's time to bracket I'll do so.

    Most of the time with MF work, tho', (generally using developers other than Diafine) my approach is more deliberate and I seldom make more than one exposure of a subject. If I do I'll often recompose as well. I'll spotmeter, think in terms of N+/-, in effect doing everything I don't normally do when using 35mm.

    In LF I don't bracket exposure - I bracket developing. I (usually) shoot both sides of the holder at exactly the same setting. When I get home, I unload all holders and develop evey second negative in the stack (I have a vague idea of which order they're in). If the first negative is good, I develop the second one the same way - just in case one of them is scratched or fingerprinted or something. If not, I look closely at the first one to decide what to do with no. 2.

    Sometimes I'll use the second negative for experimenting with new mixes. If I know the first one is good in developer A, I will try it in developer B. It is interesting to see the differences in tonality and "structure" between different developers...

    bracketing & digital question

    After a while, and after bracketing (both + & -) you start seeing the same spaces (oh, I'm an architectural photographer) and the same types of light. The negs soon are all good and you'll stop bracketing. (maybe I should start going over and under two stops!) After a while, you get tired of taking 30 images of 10 spaces, and say the heck with it.

    Now, what I really need to know, since I'm not that knowledgable with digital images, is what to do with the digital image to make it appropriate for uploading to the web. How do i squeeze a 250 meg file into 150K for this site and what happens to the quality?

    Definately the wrong site for this question. You will have a better chance of an answer if you go to www.photo.net or someother digital oriented site.

    Are you sure he's not asking how to get a big analogue picture down to a postable size? If so it's a reasonable question I think.

    Sounds like a reasonable question for the submission of images to APUG. I personally use (don't laugh, gang) Corel's Photo House, the Graphics program included in WordPerfect's System 8. One can set the magnification to "pixels on each side, maintaining aspect ratio", and visually see the total size of the file. I'm sure there must be many other Graphic programs that have the ability of this "dinosaur".

    I wasn't aware of 'bracketing' until recently - where have I been! Photographing children a lot of the time - I find it challenging enough trying to get them with the one shot rather than trying for 3.
    All 3 images would be different compositions anyway depending on the speed and energy levels of the child, their mood, .... Lots of fun. I prejudge and preplan as much as I can and in the end do my best and hope for the best.
