In what situation would using FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing) be a good idea? Exposure bracketing can be blended together with HDR, but why would I use FEB?


You seem to have lost track of the original reason for AEB: To be sure you nailed the exposure. In this case you use small increments (up to 1 EV at most) while for HDR you would use larger steps (at least 3 stops but 5 is good with modern cameras).

For FEB, it is the same: To be sure you nailed the flash exposure.

    Specifically, you might use FEB to be sure you nailed the balance of flash and ambient light. This can be hard to judge without a lot of experience, and testing is often the easiest way. If you can't test, an automatic sequence might do. – mattdm Nov 16 '12 at 18:43
