Social media is part of our lives and has evolved along with society. The arrival of this new way of seeing and sharing the world has made users increasingly interested in new ways when it comes to taking photographs and videos. Of course, despite the possibilities, the photographs tend to look very a lot.

Being original is complicated, though not impossible. The evolution in mobile cameras has made devices offer more ways of use and with the arrival of foldable phones, the possibilities have multiplied even more. The most curious thing is that the advantages of this equipment combine both the foldable format and the cameras.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is a team advantaged by the foldable format and integrates a powerful and versatile photographic section. And, although you can take photographs of the highest level conventionally using the cameras, the interesting thing is to bet on different techniques taking advantage of the folding format.

Leave the tripod at home

Having a surgeon's pulse is something that not many have, but with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G it is not necessary. This device can be both the tripod and the camera, the hinge with a high degree of precision allows the phone to be placed in any position depending on the circumstances and the terrain on which it rests.

In addition, being able to fold it can also be held in the hand in a much more comfortable way. Thus, in complex situations or with little maneuverability, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G will allow us that selfie that we long for. Needless to say, all photos must be taken using the terminal's camera application.

Social networks such as Instagram have their camera application, but the features they offer are not so many and the result is below what is achieved with the native application of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. It is always best to take the photos from the camera app and then upload them to the different social networks.

Selfies are better with main cameras

A good selfie is worth a thousand words. The exterior cameras of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G can be used as cameras for selfies thanks to the exterior screen that allows you to see what the camera is capturing. Thanks to being able to control the image from this screen, the resulting selfies will be of much higher quality.

In addition, and as we have seen before, being able to place the phone as a tripod, selfies no longer have to be the usual ones. Now the stage is our gaming venue and we can angle, compose and design different styles of selfies with the same phone. All this is always with the highest quality thanks to the configuration of the cameras.

Take advantage of the rain

Don't be afraid of the elements. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G arrives with IPX8 water resistance and this allows it to be submerged, so if the rain appears it is best to take advantage of it to get the most striking snapshots. In this situation, the reflections are everywhere and thanks to the main sensor they can be focused perfectly.

Any reflection serves to achieve a striking photograph. If it is raining, the floor is most likely to have puddles and, these puddles can be used to give a 180-degree turn to reality. All you have to do is find one with an interesting reflection: buildings, people, or some typical scene of the city as a farewell.

Once the puddle is found and the situation is to bend down, the photo deserves it. The focus of the camera must be fixed on the scene or object to be photographed. The framing is free, although when playing with the perspective in this case it is no longer necessary to complicate itself, centered the scene is fine and ready, a snapshot that will triumph in social networks.

Dare with different types of plans

Conventions are fine and knowing what has worked over the years in photography allows you to have a solid foundation. But experimentation is everything and more so in something as personal as snapshot capture. The composition is formed by angles, framing, and, above all, imagination.

The drama in the photographs is the element to look for. This can be achieved by breaking conventions. The main example is to stop centering objects or subjects in photographs. Yes, focused attract attention and are the protagonists; but placing them aside is part of the scene more suggestively.

And, in photography, suggesting is an element with which you have to play. In addition, if we add to this the bewilderment we will find photographs difficult to forget. The planes that are usually used to baffle are those that are not straight or do not fall within the established canons.

The compositions that can be achieved with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G are wide thanks to the combination of cameras. On the rear is the main 12-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 focal length and optical stabilization, while the second one is a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle with f/2.2 focal length and capable of displaying 123 degrees.

By having this configuration of cameras we can dare with almost impossible angles. Imagination is the limit and the starting point. For example, the interesting thing to do is to look for angles such as chopped or counter-chopped taking advantage of the wide-angle lens. This will give a much more dramatic effect to the photographs.

Camera settings are your allies

The hardware is great and the sensor improvements are a complement to the software. Samsung has advanced in this section by leaps and bounds and now it's Galaxy Z Flip3 5G integrates a huge number of modes for all possible situations.

Knowing the options we have is still beneficial when taking a photograph. More advanced users can make use of the Pro mode that allows you to make adjustments in focus, exposure, ISO, aperture, and white balance. This model ensures that we have a professional camera in our hands.

Of course, you don't have to be a virtuoso in photography. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G integrates creative modes and that, in part, do all the work. The best example of this is the Night Hyperlapse Mode that manages to generate videos at a speed of horror and that is an interesting claim for any social network.

Another interesting mode with curious results is the colorless background mode, a mode that allows you to take a photograph and that the background of it is in black and white. A few years ago this had to be done using editing programs, now the mobile can do it alone and in a matter of seconds.
