    Start shooting, then in your Gallery, tap Photo Editor Pro > Transform > Rotate to spin the photo 90°.

  • A double-vision picture with Dual Aperture

    Double Vision

    First, find a reflection. It could be a shop window, a puddle or any other shiny surface.

  • A dizzying shot with Dual Aperture

    The Stairway

    Find a spiral staircase and go to the highest point. The taller the building, the better.

  • A reflective sunglasses selfie with Dual Aperture

    The Mirror Image

    Take your camera out in bright sunlight and grab a pair of reflective sunglasses; mirrored lenses work best.

    Get up close and personal until you can see yourself in the reflection. Make sure the sunnies are spotless.

  • An underwater snap with Dual Aperture

    The Submarine

    Dive deep, hold your breath and aim up.

    To shoot underwater, press the volume button down (located on the left side). You could try shooting a pool toy, overhanging trees or a floating friend.

    The Galaxy S9 is water resistant up to 1.5m for 30 mins. Just remember to towel dry when you’re done.

  • shapes that light up the night with Dual Aperture

    Light Graffiti

    Grab a friend, some glow sticks and go out into the night.

    Pop your camera into Pro Mode (shutter speed somewhere between 2 and 4, ISO 50) and put it somewhere it’ll stay perfectly still.

    Shoot while a friend ‘draws’ with a glow stick (or their phone flashlight). You’ll have two seconds to make a masterpiece.

    * Pro Mode can be set-up differently depending on the environment.

  • A stunning silhouette portrait with Dual Aperture

    The Silhouette

    The best time for capturing a stunning silhouette is Golden Hour—the hour before sunset.

    Have a friend stand in front of the colorful sky and start snapping. Try different poses and move your camera around until you get a shot you like.

  • snap your friends in angelic lighting with Dual Aperture

    The Halo

    Get ‘The Halo’ effect with car headlights.

    Position a friend between you and stationary car headlights. Make sure they block the lights entirely for a stunning halo effect around their silhouette.

    Experiment with different poses and try shooting from a crouched position—not at eye height—for a more dramatic effect.

  • A mirage-like photo with Dual Aperture

    The Mirage

    First, find a reflective surface—a swimming pool, lake or even a puddle will do.

    With you on one side and a friend on the other, photograph the reflection in the water.

    Then, go into the Gallery and tap Photo Editor Pro > Transform > Flip vertical to finish the effect.

  • A skyward jump shot with Dual Aperture

    The Jump Shot

  • A mid-air action snap with Dual Aperture

    The Hover

    A Burst Shot is your secret weapon here. To take one, simply press and hold the shoot button; your Galaxy will take 20+ photos as your friend jumps.

    In the Gallery, find the image where your friend appears suspended in thin air; neither rising or falling.

    Burst Shot works best in bright light, so jump outside.

  • A pro-level vanishing point shot with Dual Aperture

    The Vanishing Point

    Professional photographers often use the vanishing point; a point in the distance where two parallel lines come together—like white rails above.

    You’ll find that getting close to the ground often helps. Now add a friend for a perfectly framed photo.
