Rise & shine

For this tip, we’re going to explain how we can take advantage of that near perfect light that we get in the morning. Soft and beautiful light glows between 7am - 10am, giving you optimal lighting for almost any angle.

It’s best to start about 15 minutes after sunrise. The light level is usually fairly low right at sunrise. You know what they say! Early bird gets the worm!

In the shadows

We live in a tropical climate where the bright sun is shining constantly. How can we take advantage of this? Take some great photos of course! This is a very simple tip that gives really great photos!

Late afternoon is usually a great time to shoot some photos under a tree. Find a great tree that has lengthy branches and leaves that partially blocks the sun. Get under it and find a good spot of where there are light pockets shining down on you. Take a few different variations and we promise that you will get stunning photos out of it which is even better with Samsung’s portrait mode.

Golden hour!

Golden hour is the holy grail of natural light. It doesn’t last very long but it does set its own mood and vibe which is unique.

When the sun sets, you get beautiful backlight which makes your hair and skin pop! Just step right in front of that sunset like in the photo above and witness the magic right on your phone. Simple yet effective!
