    This will darken up that shoe brush image.
    If we're interested in a picture of a shoe brush, this one is not nearly as good as the picture would if we tapped back to focus on the brush.

    As we can see now, the whole brush is the focus, and we have a much better image.

    We can use that and move the brush around.
    Each time we make significant changes to the frame of the camera, the iPhone is going to change the exposure.

    If we move down, the picture will get darker.
    The lower the sun is, the darker the picture, and the higher the sun is, the brighter the picture. This is an interesting thing that can help guide us into taking more and better pictures with the iPhone 6 or any other camera or that matter.
