Ok, let's see if I have this rightUnfortunately I will not have ample time to practice al lthis before heading off to exotic-land and taking pics, but processing upon return...so it might be trial by fire, lol....so I obtained a Nikon D300 and a Nikon 10.5mm fisheye.
Camera settings recommended were:
# Aperture f/8.0
# ISO 200 or less
# White Balance "Custom" to match scene (not sure how to WB yet)
# Manual Lens Focus
# Use remote shutter release
# camera set to RAW+JPEG fine
With the head and the Nikon 10.5mm fisheye, I am to shoot
6 around at 0 degrees with 1x Zenith at +90 degrees and 1x Nadir -90 (or hand held -90).
Now Nikon has a pseudo extended dynamic range setting they call Active D-lighting. Shall I enable that setting or turn it off and take 2 series of shots, slightly over exposed, then slightly underexposed, then blend them?
Any other settings, advice or things I should do?
