Automation has made our lives so much more convenient. Nowadays, you can take great photos with your smartphone without adjusting any settings or worrying about lighting. The camera does the work for you, so you don’t have to be a pro photographer.

But there are some things you can’t do in Auto mode, and manual photography gives you more options. You can narrow the depth of field to create a dreamy atmosphere with a softly blurred background or foreground. You can increase the exposure to create the warm atmosphere of a sunny afternoon. You can also adjust the shutter speed to show a brief moment in time or the slow path of a moving subject. Today we’ll talk about Pro mode, which expands your creative freedom.

 

 

 

 

 

01 Using Pro Mode

 

First, let’s launch Pro mode on the Galaxy S8 and look at all the options it offers. If you’re interested in photography and have some knowledge in this area, you may be surprised. “Wow,” you might be saying. “Is this really a smartphone camera?”

The ISO value controls light sensitivity. Higher ISO values allow you to take bright photos in poorly lit environments, but can also result in noise in photos.

Shutter Speed

This is how long the camera shutter stays open as you snap a photo. Use a fast shutter speed when taking photos of fast-moving subjects. A slow shutter speed is ideal when you want to capture the path of the movement.

02 How to Create a Bokeh Photo

 

Most of the time, a good picture is in focus. But for now, we’ll forget that rule and get creative. With bokeh, part of the picture is intentionally blurred and out of focus. Experiment with bokeh photos of holiday lights or car headlights in low light environments. Aren’t they beautiful?

03 How to Shoot Light Trails

 

In Pro mode, you can capture the path of moving lights by adjusting the shutter speed. Have fun trying this with the flash on a phone or with sparkle sticks.

04 How to Shoot Backlit Photos in Natural Light

 

When you shoot facing the sun, often your subjects come out as silhouettes. That’s why so many people say you should have the sun at your back. But if you know how to adjust the exposure, you can take stunning backlit photos—and they’ll have a radiant glow that you just can’t achieve with the sun at your back.
