But what if you wanna capture sunrise and sunset on your phone? Sunrises and sunsets are beautiful and people love watching them. Of course, many times you must have thought that you should save this beautiful moment on your phone and you might have done this too.
But many pictures might not have satisfied you as much as a picture clicked with a DSLR camera. Well, here we have some Pro Tips that will help you click some great shots of sunrise and sunset on your Samsung One UI 4.1 smartphones.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
