A little planning goes a long way

“Shooting photos lets me experience more of the locations that I visit,” said Austin. He maps out all his destinations, figuring the more he knows about a spot beforehand, the more he can take in while there. Based on his best Instagram photos, he’s right. Preliminary research helps him keep an open eye for the unexpected.

Keep your composition consistent

Whether he’s at a steep vantage point or down on the ground, Austin’s eye gravitates to balance, hard angles and stark lines. “I love to have perfect symmetry in my images,” said Austin. The Galaxy Note9 camera’s gridlines help him “make everything perfectly straight,” he added. He uses them to align a shot and capture consistent composition in his travel photography.

When lighting gets tricky

Austin leans on Pro Mode. It allows him to adjust Galaxy camera settings, like Dual Aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed, to optimize what natural light he has. “If it’s at night, it’s more complicated with getting the settings right,” Austin said. His mobile photography tip for Pro Mode beginners: adjust the aperture to F1.5 if you’re in a low light setting and F2.4 if you’re shooting in bright light.

There’s freedom in traveling light

The Galaxy Note9 allows Austin to lose the heavy bags, giving him more freedom to explore and capture his best Instagram photos. “It’s almost like I’m stepping back from worrying so much about all this equipment and I’m really able to take in the location—more than I ever have in the past,” said Austin.

What’s next

The bucket list grows longer, as does the shot list. He’s gearing up for more travel and testing for his drone photography license. “I’d definitely like to expand my gallery work and start a business doing drone work,” said Austin.

We can’t wait to see the heights he reaches.
