1. Hold in bracket button - just below the flash button on front of camera and left of lens.

2. While holding button down:

Turn command dial on back of camera unti "3F" shows.
Then turn command dial on front of camera to either "1.0" or "2.0". (Note: The front dial can also be set to "3.0" if needed)

3. This will bracket 3 shots with a 1 stop difference on 1.0 or a two stop difference on 2.0 One shot will be at set exposure, one will be "overexposed" and one will be "underexposed.

I shoot in aperture priority to keep my f stop constant.

Take three shots in Single advance or hold shutter release down one time for three shots in Continuous low advance.

Best if you use a tripod and a remote. If you use the wireless Nikon remote, you can not use Continuous advance. It only works in Single advance. (However the wireless remote can be set to also work with Single Advance and Mirror Up to better reduce camera vibration.

Process in an HDR program.

Hope this helps.
