…I mentioned Bracketing earlier in the course as a way to shoot the same…scene with different exposure settings.…This is useful when the lighting starts to get tricky because Bracketing can…improve your chances of getting a correctly exposed shot.…You can also use Bracketing when created high dynamic range or HDR photos.…If you want to learn more about HDR,…be sure to check out my course here on lynda.com all about Photomatix Pro.…Your camera offers auto-exposure Bracketing.…This tells the camera to automatically alter the exposure settings between…shots and take a continuous burst of shots.…
You end up with several different exposures that can then be combined or…used on their own.…To activate Bracketing, make sure you're in a mode like Aperture Priority.…Then, press the Menu button.…Go to the third Record menu, and…choose Exposure Compensation, Auto Exposure Bracketing and press Set.…Use the left and right arrows to move the center point.…This will adjust the overall exposure compensation.…Then, turn the main dial to set the range of the bracket.…
