Default Blended exposures, or how to extend your dynamic range...

OK, in some situations you're faced with a dilemma - if you expose for the brightest parts of a scene then you'll have no shadow detail, but if you expose for shadows then you'll have blown out areas - what to do?

Using a tripod if possible, take two exposures from exactly the same place - one exposed for the highlights, and one for midtones/shadows - then combine the two in Photoshop.
