    : Bracketed exposures are nothing more than automating changing the
    : exposure by a bit on either side of your chosen exposure. It's
    : just as easy to change the aperture yourself.

    Another breezy pronouncement by someone who rarely has to photograph children.

    Sounds like someone who doesn't know what HDR is. How useful do you
    think it is for portraits?

    The point of my email was that these tools are automating things that
    can easily be done by your own hands. It's possible to focus manually
    and it certainly is possible to set your exposure manually.

    A misunderstanding on my part, I guess; I thought you were dumping on
    automated bracketing generally, not just for HDR.

    That said, I'd think that in HDR photography, where close attention to detail
    is important, you'd always want to minimize the amount of manual intervention,
    so as not to jiggle the camera and cause image registration problems. But what
    do I know? As you surmised, I've never done any HDR work.
