Smartphones have been equipped with cameras for many years, but since the influential world of Social Media, particlary Instagram, they have improved at an alarming rate. Their small lenses and tiny sensors have limitations and this is why I love Smartphone photography because it creates a challenge and whilst the quality and power of a “real” camera can’t be matched, they can still produce amazing images.
How many times have you witnessed an incredible sunset here in the Algarve only to be disappointed by the result of your photo? I will explain why this happens and how to overcome these issues. This workshop helps you take control of the default camera app’s “PRO” mode to overcome the challenges of smartphone photography
The images below show the difference between using the default camera and the “PRO” mode of a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. All the other photos in the product gallery have been taken on various Samsung Galaxy Smartphones.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy Smartphone with “PRO” mode (see video below to help you find it), then come and join me for a sunset session at Alvor Marina. Of course, I can’t guarantee a perfect sunset, but I can guarantee you’ll learn how to photograph one.
