Re: right, except that it's underexpose

How would I do this with a phone camera as there’s no metre to see?

Dont know what phone you use, but on my Samsung I can snap a picture, look at it on the phone and select details to see Shutter speed, aperture and ISO. I assume all/most phone photo apps let you see the exposure on an image.

I can also use the Lightroom app, set it too manual and experiment with shutter speed and ISO.

Then compare a good exposure on the phone with what the camera meter think is right. Most likely they wont agree exactly, but close enough to check for major differences. Of course, comparing with a "real" camera is easier.

Edit: You could also get a light meter app for you phone.
