I love taking photos of landscape and we live in a beautiful country. In the east the leaves are falling, in the Pacific Northwest the green is evergreen and in the midwest there are all kinds of scapes to capture. There are a ton of apps to help you become a great phone photographer no matter which operating system you are on. I’m currently on Windows phone and I love the versatility in the apps. I really love using the Nokia Phone app and changing the phone to macro mode. It’s my favorite and great for landscapes. Verizon has teamed up with Nick LaVecchia and shared some of this tips.

Photo Tips: Landscape photography
Shot with the Samsung Galaxy S 5
- Turn off Image Stabilization to customize camera settings.
- Underexpose by half a stop or so to boost sky hues and landscape colors.
- Change ISO to the lowest setting (i.e., 100).
- In VSCO Cam, tweak exposure, contrast and saturation settings before resorting to presets/filters.
- When adjusting these elements, compare the treated image to the original and see which one you like best.
