Typically it's done in game by going into the settings page and adjusting gamma under 'Video Settings' > 'Gamma', but this does not work for all versions.

One effective method to change the brightness is by using a "Fullbright" pack. Fullbright is a resource pack that makes Minecraft lighter, allowing you to see much further, even better than with night vision. This technique works with all versions of Minecraft, including Java, Bedrock, and MCPE, without needing OptiFine.

The first step is to find and download a Fullbright pack that is compatible with your version of Minecraft. You can find Fullbright packs on various websites or by searching on Google. Once you have found a pack that you like, download it to your computer. We recommend using this pack .

The game may tell you during the installation that the pack was made for a newer or aged Minecraft interpretation. This is an error and you can still use the pack.

Note: Different servers have different rules for what texture packs are allowed. It's important to keep up with the conditions. Other players may not be happy with you using it, and if they find out, they can report you.
