When to use it
So when should you use exposure bracketing? Any time you feel there’s a general imbalance in either highlights or shadows. For example, sunsets can be very difficult to capture, due to the shifting light and colours. Bracketing is also incredibly useful in situations where the camera can be deceived by light, this way you can be prepared and compensate for it by capturing several exposures at a time. Another example, is when there’s an abundance of light around your subject, such as being on a beach on a sunny day, or taking pictures near snow. Your camera will perceive this extreme abundance of light, and will likely counter this by capturing under-exposed shots. Bracketing will ensure you capture multiple exposures so that your surroundings and your subject are both properly exposed. In simple terms, exposure bracketing allows you to combine similar images of different exposures into one blended image with balanced light.
Give exposure bracketing a go and create your own perfectly balanced composition.
