How to Use PhotoPills For Your Landscape Photography

Since I’ve been a landscape photographer I’ve looked for apps that I could use to help me plan my landscape photography.

For the longest time I used The Photographer’s Ephimeris (who has recently come out with a very functional iPhone app.)

I found their platform a little lacking in everything I wanted to know about a day.

In a photography app, I want something that will do more than I want to know. I want endless possibilities so that I’m not left hanging when an epic sunset comes my way.

Enter PhotoPills.

I found the app through some of my photography friends and was eager to try it out to see if it was the app I had been longing for.

PhotoPills does everything that I want it to do except predict the weather.

Functions that come on PhotoPills include a sun and moon tracker, augmented reality features that show you where everything will be in the sky for your location, moon phases, depth of field calculators, star trail calculators, and more Milky Way information than you could dream of. That’s just scratching the surface too.

I’m pretty sure that if someone truly made a video explaining everything PhotoPills does for planning your photography it would take you all day to go through it.

That’s not necessary to get started. I’ve made a video for you to start planning your photos as a PhotoPills beginner…

Even if you don’t plan your photos much, PhotoPills will help you in the field with augmented reality (shown in the video above.)

I honestly use PhotoPills every time I go out to shoot. Its functionality can’t be beat for landscape photography and I can’t say that enough.
