Pick the best moment to capture your outdoor photos with this app

If you like exploring the great outdoors, there’s nothing like documenting your adventures with the perfect landscape photo. However, capturing the best outdoor image can be challenging because of available lighting and weather conditions.

First, figuring out the time of a sunset or a sunrise on your own can be quite tricky, especially if you’re not familiar with the day and night cycles of a particular location. Next, plotting your shot around shadows can be time-consuming and you might miss the perfect moment entirely.

Thankfully, there’s an app that can help you plan your outdoor photos by giving you vital information about the available natural light for any specific location.

The Photographer’s Ephemeris

The Photographer’s Ephemeris, available for both iOS and Android gadgets, helps you figure out the perfect lighting. The app actually traces the direction and intensity of natural light and advises you on the angle of your camera.

Framing a portrait is an art, whether you’re taking a picture of a person or a mountain range. But the real challenge is the light. How do you take a beautiful landscape when the sun (or moon) isn’t cooperating?

With The Photographer’s Ephemeris, you can pinpoint your desired location and it will give you details about sunrise/sunset times, the direction of light and shadow and even the topography of the surrounding area (via Google Maps.)

Whether you are a novice or a professional landscape photographer, The Photographer’s Ephemeris is a very useful app that can make all your outdoor photos a tad easier to execute. This is some pretty sophisticated technology, but it’s fun to tinker with, and it might just transform the way you see the world.
