I keep reading you can tone map images to bring out the shadows, lower highlights, etc. However when I search all I can find is stuff relating to HDR. I can't believe everyone is assuming that all of us are bracketing every single shot. Can someone give me insight on what this would mean for a single exposure shot? Maybe point me towards a tutorial. I'm trying to learn post processing, but it seems a more daunting task than learning to shoot manual mode and manually focus; which really wasn't too bad.
