Pour your juice of choice and take it somewhere sunny. Then position the glass so it casts a unique shadow. Switch your camera to Pro Mode, tap the aperture icon, and set it to f2.4. Then drag the shutter speed left or right, and take the shot.
Play around with the composition by adding more glasses and objects to the setting.
Go to your favourite spot at magic hour–the part of dawn or dusk when the sun’s the most red. Use a tripod or a stable surface to prop up your phone, set your camera to Auto Mode, and tap the sun once it hits the trees. Then take your photo.
Feel free to experiment with your shot by showing more ground or sky.
Stand between two buildings and aim your camera upward. Align your shot by tapping the gear icon at the top right corner and choosing Grid lines > 3×3.
Then hold your finger on the base of one building to lock the exposure, and take your shot.
Walk under a long bridge and stand facing the other side. Then tilt your camera up so that the bridge feels like it’s connected to the top of the frame.
Put your camera on Auto Mode, tap the underside of the bridge to expose the detail, and then take your shot.
First, go under a structure and look up for a different perspective. A ferris wheel will do. Then put your phone on Auto Mode, use the sky to frame your subject, tap on it to focus, and take the shot.
Get a friend to stand in front of a large, hollow object. Then line up a shot on the other side so they’re in the middle of the frame. Lock the focus on your subject by holding your finger on the screen for one second, and take the shot.
Find an interesting object or structure somewhere? Try turning it into a frame.
First, look around to see what you can frame up, and position your subject matter squarely in the middle of your frame. While on Auto Mode, hold your thumb on your subject until the the AF/AE Lock circle appears. Then take your shot.
Grab a friend and a lightweight object, like a tennis ball or an empty cup with a lid.
Set your camera to Auto Mode and take a Burst Shot while your friend throws the object into the air. Do this by pressing and holding the shoot button. Then pick out the image in your Gallery where the object is at its peak.
Serve a unique meal in a simple dish. Make sure there’s contrast between the food, the plate, and the table. Then hold your Galaxy Note9 above it, put it on Auto Mode, let the food icon appear, and shoot.
The Note9 recognizes food automatically and optimizes it to enhance the presentation.
At night, go inside a room that’s close to a streetlight. Position a friend in front of the blinds, and open and close them so harsh shadows appear.
Select Pro Mode, set your aperture to f1.5, and drag the shutter speed to create sharp shadows. Then shoot.
The Light Tattoo
Go into a sunny room with lace curtains. Position a friend in front of the sun and move the curtains so a light tattoo forms on them. Then tap the brightest part of the picture to create stark shadows, and take the shot.
