Exposure bracketing...

Hello all!

I am shooting a Nikon D850 and have a question about exposure bracketing.

I have never bracketed my exposures, but now I would like to start. I am getting into real estate photography, and am doing HDR bracketing. I tend to do 5 brackets: 0 / -1 / -2 / +1 / +2.

Just so you're aware, I'm shooting in manual mode, ISO 200, and usually at f/16. I then vary the shutter to achieve "correct" exposure.

The issue is that unless I'm doing something wrong, I cannot adjust the "correct" exposure when bracketing is turned on.

That's a problem, because, let's say I'm in the kitchen. I set the "correct" exposure, say to 1/100 at f/16, turn on bracketing, shoot my five brackets, and then move into the living room.

Now the exposure is (obviously) completely different, maybe 1/40 at f/16, but in order to set the "correct" exposure to 1/40, I have to turn off bracketing, set the exposure to zero (or 1/40 in my example), turn bracketing back on, shoot my five brackets, annnnnnnnnd start all over again in the next room.

Surely there has to be a way to be able to vary the shutter speed as the exposure changes without having to turn bracketing off.

Am I missing something? If I am, it's way easier just to not use auto-bracketing.

Would appreciate any help.

Thank you!
