If we’re shooting important events (eg wedding) in tricky lighting conditions, using bracketing to reduce our risk of losing important photos with the right exposure. So also when it comes to shooting HDR, use bracketing to produce images with the same object but have different exposures, so that later can be combined to produce a HDR photo.

With DSLR cameras, we can determine how much exposure variation: ranging from a 1/3 stop to per-second stop, and how many total images in all bracketing (of 3 photos up to 6 photos), depending on each camera. How does the setting? labors is every camera manufacturer has its own way, so here we will take the two major brands; canon and nikon, other brand owners to please check their manual.
