Extreme light

In most situations you can't choose your light, and have to use what's available. Situations with extreme differences in light-intensity are a little problematic even for modern digital cameras. Most digital cameras have a lower dynamic range than analog film, and both won't even get close to the range of the human eye. Especially night shots are sometimes difficult to handle:
Workers and lamps highly overexposed. Environment underexposed, sky black.
With several different exposures of the same scenario, you can handle that problem with a procedure called DRI ("Data Range Increase"). There are a several DRI-guides available in the net, one of them will be found here.
With a little experience results can be amazing:
