5 Tips and Tricks for Shooting Landscapes with a Phone

Tip #1. Don’t Hesitate to Shoot

Just pull your smartphone out and do it! It’s much easier with your mobile phone in your hand than with your big DSLR and tele-zoom lens. The best camera is the one that you have with you, so even if you’re unprepared and all you have is your phone, you can still get the shot.

Tip #2. Experiment with Depth of Field

Use leading lines within your foreground and select an aperture that will give you great depth of field. Don’t forget to focus on the first third of the image that is closest to you, in order to obtain a sharp image or to blur the background.

Tip #3. Avoid Filters

When you’re editing your smartphone images, try not to use in-built filters or presets. Rather, you can process your images yourself and develop your own style.

Tip #4. Back Up Your Images

When you return home after each trip, download your smartphone images to your computer. While this is a good way of storing and backing up your photos, it also gives you time to review the photos that you don’t want or need.

Tip #5. Cull, Cull, Cull!

Let’s face it – you really don’t need to have hundreds of photos of the same thing. It’s easy to take too many photos with a smartphone, so once you’ve reviewed your images, delete the ones that you don’t want to keep. This will free up more space for you to take new shots the next time that you head out!

Now that you’ve got the lowdown on how to shoot better landscapes with your mobile phone, it’s time to get out there and practice your skills. Experiment with using different shooting formats, have a go at editing your images with the help of a few apps and consider investing in some accessories to take your mobile photography to a whole new level!
