comment Is it possible to take HDR-photos straight out of camera?
@Mike. This wasn't a question about camera features. I was wondering if I could bring forth the "details" of the underexposed and overexposed parts of a scene with multi-exposure. What would you do with dias film? I still haven't got any answer to that question (and it's definitely not described in my cameras manual). After some thinking, I now believe it's impossible to solve that by multi-exposure. I've learned that GND might be used to "even out" the exposure-range. I probably made a big mistake by bringing in the "HDR" term...

comment Is it possible to take HDR-photos straight out of camera?
Perhaps I should rephrase my question (or ask a new one). I'm just wondering if it is possible to combine 3 "shots" into a single picture by multiple-exposure - and get an overall "perfect" exposure by combining over- and under-exposed shots. ... ... After giving it a second thought, I think I understand that that's not possible. The overexposed shots would "burn out" the "perfect" areas of the previously taken underexposed shot... Right?

Perhaps that's my question. "Is HDR only a "processing"-thing, or could the same effect/problem be solved trough the actual exposing (aka film/dias capturing technique)".

@mattdm, Hm. The other question doesn't really answer my question (I have a D90, btw, and not on the list). As far as I can tell, the other question is about having a built-in HDR post-processing tool. And the answers recommencement taking BKT-exposures and then use an external post-prosessing-software... I would like to get a similar effect during the actual exposure.

Ah. Thanks. Perhaps this one too: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/38689/… :-/ ?

comment Should both eyes be focused in a portrait?
Thank you. It's always nice to lean towards the "it's my piece of art". It really is - in all ways. I take photos for my own sake, not for everyone else. I was just wondering if this was "not recommended - by the book"...

The question I ask myself at the end of the day is: "Is that a nice effect or is it all wrong (and not "by the book")...?"

comment Should both eyes be focused in a portrait?
Thank you for these suggestions. I know (deep inside) that I don't have to use 1.4, but as I mentioned elsewhere: I kinda tend to lean towards the extremes since I don't have enough experience/knowledge about the relative DoF in various situation (focal length/distance/aperture). I also experience that 1.4 gives the photography that extra shallow DoF you wont get with "regular kit lenses", so I like to experiment with those settings (below f2.8) when I have that fixed 50mm attach. And as I shoot various stuff (eg. in a market place), a potentially nice "kid portrait motive" appears...

Thank you very much for the additional DoF info. As a hobby photographer I only know the concepts very well (I think), but I have never studied the details and actual effects of the various combinations of focal length, distance to subject and aperture... (Thus I often go for the extremes: "I really want a shallow DoF, so I'll just use A-priority at f1.4" - even if that might be unnecessary in many situations.)

Yes. It's a candid photo. Most of my photos are... This is probably taken in a Spanish market place while I'm trying not to loose any of my other kids :-)

@Michael: Yeah. It's a photo for the wallet when we grow old, not a photo for the wall in the living room... You'll just have to look beyond that goo for the sake of the essence in the question ;-) Thanks for mentioning that the unfocused eye is not distracting.
