Since I learned to use on how to adjust exposure on Sony a6000, it’s easier to adjust the Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.
I frequently shoot on Aperture Mode when I am out and about taking shots of landscape and architecture with people but not yet portrait.
The Digital Camera Mastery course that I finally finished helped me to understand my camera and one of the new things I learned is Exposure Bracketing.
What is EV Bracketing?
With EV Bracketing, you can take three shots with one press of a button.
- Auto exposure – optimal exposed
- Darker version – under exposed
- Lighter version – over exposed
Here’s how to set EV Bracketing on Sony a6000
Menu > camera icon > tab 2 > Drive Mode> Cont. Bracket
You can choose different exposures and number of images:
- 0.3EV 3 Image
- 0.3EV 5 Image
- 0.5EV 3 Image
- 0.7EV 3 Image
- 0.7EV 5 Image
- 1.0EV 3 Image
- 2.0EV 3 Image
- 3.0EV 3 Image
I will use 0.3EV 3 Image in doing travel and street photography.
Photos Taken Using EV Bracketing
Time to show some shots I took using Sony a6000 in manual mode with 36 mm focal length.
I took a photo of one of my plants in my room because I don’t want to use my camera in winter. And if you know the name of the cactus do let me know. It took me a lot of time to figure out what is Haworthia Limofilia.
Cont. Bracket: 0.3EV 3 Image
Photo 1: shutter – 1/15, aperture – f/6.3 and ISO – 3200
Photo 2: shutter – 1/15, aperture – f/6.3 and ISO – 2500
Photo 3: shutter – 1/15, aperture – f/6.3 and ISO – 3200
Surprisingly, the first and third shots turned out to have the same settings.

I’ll end this post with a news. Good or bad? It depends on how much is the future cost.
Before I write this post I watched a video of Kyle and found out that Sony a6000 was discontinued.
It could be a good news for those who are looking for a beginner mirrorless camera if the price will go down.
I have no regrets in buying it. If I will upgrade (which a long way down the road) I’m eyeing Sony a6600 which is pricey. Well, I better not drop my camera.
With the upcoming sale, what mirrorless camera are you going to buy?
