10 Minute Photo Outing | Night Time LG Stylo 3 Smartphone Photography


Today we’re looking at a 10-minute photo
outing. I’m gonna go over all the photos that I took. Some of what I was doing at
the time. Main goal here was just to go out and take photos. It was already dark out.
I only had a few locations that would work. I had two phones with me and a little tripod for the b-roll. Worked out pretty
nicely, of course these phones are not great for dark conditions. First thing I
saw where the flagpoles of course. Shooting up into the fly poles. That
means you can get a lot of the pole itself in the photo filling the frame.
And autofocus was not great in that situation. It was super dark in that
little spot, but I did get one photo that looks okay… looks okay. It was around 17 degrees
Fahrenheit, which is pretty cold. I don’t even know what I’m doing out here… And it was challenging with phones to take
photos because you’re usually taking your gloves off, put them back on. Even
when you have that touch capability on the gloves it doesn’t really work too
well. Especially on screens like this. Any type of source of light are great
opportunities for photos in dark conditions because you can easily focus
on that. And I took a few pictures of these little lamps they have around at
the park. These plants here had a nice texture to
them and some snow on them so definitely wanted to try to take some photos of
that. The central structure, or monument, or
whatever you wanna call it in this little park is a good photo op. With
this specific phone, it has one focal length. One camera in it. And I wasn’t finding
great angles for that one spot. Take photos anyways.
See what you get out of it… I had two sets of plants that didn’t
work out. Autofocus was definitely one of the main challenges in this little
photo outing. Especially with gloves on. This evergreen with a loop. I was trying
to find a good angle, good position to take some photos of it. I did get a few that
were nicely in focus. I tried using some of the lights in the
area for flares, sun bursts, that did work out nicely. Of course. when you focus on
the light itself the phone will automatically change the exposure. So you
can give different look to the photos. Or focus on something else and then it’ll
be a brighter picture. But of course more noise in that situation. Here we have some tall grasses. They still look
very nice for this time of year. And in the background you’ve got all the lights
from a busy street. This plants still looked pretty interesting. The area was very dark so with this phone. That didn’t work out super amazing. Here we have the
light shining down on this stone path. I think I’ve taken some photos of this,
works out nicely. And then in the background
have a different color of light with those other structures. I did try to take some photos of the flags, groups of flags, worked out okay… The reflection of the marble in this
area drew my eye… More plants I wasn’t able to get proper
focus on in this situation… More tall grasses as well those are a
very nice subject. At that point I hit the ten-minute mark. I was done with the
photo outing. I did take one other photo right afterwards. If you want to see that
one… But technically it does not count. I think this is a good way to take
photos if you feel a little bit unmotivated, you still want to go out
though. Just having a nice enjoyable time doing photography, I think is a great
thing!
