    From the home screen give a quick tap to the "Camera" icon to open the camera. Now, what we are going to explain is very basic photography, but it can significantly impact the photos we take.

    Next, we are going to be using a very ordinary, unused shoe brush to take some photos.

  6. 6
    First, we'll move the shoe brush behind the camera.

    Let's turn the brush sideways a little, and then tap on the screen near the white area of the brush.

    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    As we can see now, the whole brush is the focus, and we have a much better image.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Therefore, we will need to tap again somewhere on the brush to get that image where we want it to be.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Each time we move, it is changing the exposure.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    To change the brightness of a particular area, just press and hold down on the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    A little sun icon will appear on the side of small square that outlines the area where we pressed.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now, press an hold where that sun icon is and move up to increase the brightness.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    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.

    When we're done playing around with our photos, we can give a single press to the Home button to go back to the home screen. From there, we can begin using the phone to do whatever it is we were doing before.
