A Light Field Camera Tutorial From Lytro Director Of Photography Eric Cheng:

Bracket by moving: move in and out to both push the limits of refocus and to ensure that you have a sharply refocusable final picture.
Bracket by zooming: if you are pushing the limits of refocus, zoom out (in Everyday mode) to take a “safe shot.”
