Capture Sunset and Sunrise with Samsung One UI 4.1 camera 

  • Check what time the sun rises or sets

When you want to take professional-looking photographs, you must know what time the sunrise or sunset is.

  • Pick a stunning location

Find and explore some places in advance. Beautiful colors are only for a few minutes.

  • Clouds can lift the eventual result

You might think that clear skies are best for sunset photography, but the best sunrise and sunset images tend to have some clouds. A cloudless sky can make a picture boring. Whereas, the clouds reflect the astonishing colors of the rising or setting sun.

  • Stay after the sun sets and come before sunrise

Do not leave immediately after sunset, this is the time where the magic happens! Both Blue Hour and Golden Hour have a lot to offer to smartphone photographers.

  • Shoot in RAW in Manual Mode

RAW images are easily manipulated in post-processing in Lightroom, Snapseed, or Photoshop. This makes it easy to edit the image. The file contains brightness, color, and contrast information, giving you ultimate creative freedom.

  • Clean the camera lens

Make sure there is no fingerprint or grease on the lens of your smartphone. They can ruin your photos and are the number one reason for unsharp photos.

Samsung Camera

  • Bring a tripod and remote shutter

when you aim to take perfect shots, you should make sure that your camera remains stable, either by using a tripod or by leaning your phone on a fixed object.

  • Use an ND filter

Use a Neutral Density (ND) filter. It allows you to use a longer shutter speed and create smooth-looking seas, streams, and lakes.

  • Pick an interesting foreground or background

Make sure you pick an interesting foreground or background, so your image has more depth and is well balanced.

  • Adjust brightness

Most smartphone camera apps have a manual mode to adjust shutter speed, white balance, ISO values, and brightness. Use the slider to brighten or darken the image.

  • Choose the correct white balance

When the warm colors of the sunrise or sunset did not come across well in your photographs, change the white balance to ‘cloudy‘ or pick a higher Kelvin number.

  • Use landscape mode and wide-angle lens

Sunrise and sunset images usually work best in landscape mode with a wide-angle lens.

  • Pay attention to lens flare

When you have the sun directly in the photo, a lens flare can occur. These are colored spheres, dots, or rainbows that appear in the picture.

  • Take many images with different settings

Try taking sunrise and sunset pictures with different settings, such as longer shutter speeds, different white balance, and ISO values, to see what works best.

One UI 4.1 Camera settings

  • Zoom with your feet

Your smartphone’s camera zoom-in is nothing more than a digital zoom that crops the original image size. So walk closer to the subject and take your pictures.

  • Shoot towards and away from the sun

Don’t just photograph the sun. You can get some great colors and atmosphere when shooting away from the sun.

  • Edit your images

The most important part of editing sunset and sunrise photography begins with shooting RAW images. This setting will guarantee that none of the lighting, contrast and color information will be lost during the editing process, and you can adjust anything you need.
