Setting him loose as the sun set over London on one of the final days of Daylight Saving Time, Mr. Whisper captured a range of his own images, as well as guided others on how to take the perfect ‘sun-setting’ selfie in the dying light of day.
With the onset of long nights, Mr. Whisper offers his top tips for capturing the perfect images and selfies in low-light:
1. Use your manual ISO control: “ISO is essentially the level of sensitivity of your camera to available light. The lower the ISO setting, the better the chance of a high-quality image but this isn’t always possible in low-light conditions. With the S6 edge+, you can manually adjust the ISO level to optimize picture quality in low-light conditions, without avoiding image degradation.”
2. Say cheese with voice control: “Controlling camera actions with your voice is quite under-utilised. The voice control for the S6 edge+ camera is quite responsive – when capturing longer exposures and shutter speeds, a simple command means that you don’t have to reach out to touch the handset or use a conventional remote control to activate the shot. Simple, but highly effective.”
3. Layer it up with HDR mode: “HDR – or High Dynamic Range – essentially takes three different pictures and automatically merges the best frame from each to create one optimum photo. This is a great feature for low-light shooting, allowing you to gain contrast and detail between the foreground and background subjects.”
