Beginner tips for raw images: 10 You can expand dynamic range by combining raw conversions
In high-contrast lighting, your camera sensor may not be able to record detail in the dark or bright areas of a picture (or indeed both).
By converting the same image twice, each time adjusting the exposure of the shot to deal with high-contrast lighting, you can produce an image that shows detail in all areas.
For landscape photography, the effect is similar to using a graduated Neutral Density lens filter to darken the top half of your image, but you have much more control over the transition between the two exposures.
