Edited by Thor, Rushell, Jen M, Anonymous
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to use the exposure bracketing function when using a Microsoft Lumia camera on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Swipe the lock screen up to get to the home screen.
Find the Lumia Camera tile.
It is purple with an icon of a camera on it. If Lumia Camera is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left to bring up the App menu. Then scroll to find the Lumia Camera application.
Wherever it may be, tap to open it.
First, press the ellipsis, or three dots in a row, at the bottom right corner of the screen.
This will bring up a menu of options.
Select "bracketing", which is the second option from the bottom.
This will open the "EXPOSURE BRACKETING" screen.
Exposure bracketing takes multiple images at different exposure levels. If you are not sure of the correct exposure level, or you want to manually select the shutter speed or ISO, this will help with that. The camera will take a few photos with different exposures, and then you can choose the best one.
Press down on the text box below "Number of photos to take".
Choose to take 3 photos or 5 photos by tapping on the number.
Next is "Exposure range".
The default for this is minus one exposure to plus one exposure ("-1EV to +1EV"). There are also options for "-2EV to +2EV" and "-3EV to +3EV". What this simply means is more extremes. With a higher exposure, there will be a greater change in the photo.
Now, press the "set" button at the bottom of the screen.
To take a photo, press on the camera icon in the middle at the bottom of the screen.
The camera will take five photos with different types of exposure.
To review the photos, press the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen.
The first photo shows plus 3 exposure (+3EV).
Slide across to see the other photos.
As the exposure level goes down, the photos will appear darker.
We will demonstrate this with a natural image as well.
However, first we need to go back into the exposure bracketing mode.
Tap the ellipsis at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Then choose bracketing from the menu.
Tap the "set" button at the bottom left of the screen to accept the options.
Now, take the photos by tapping once on the camera icon at the bottom of the screen.
It will take five photos.
To review the photos, tap the icon at the top right corner of the screen.
The first photo shows the most exposure.
Swiping across reveals photos with a lower amount of exposure.
This concludes our tutorial on how to use the exposure bracketing function when using a the Lumia Camera on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
