Capturing the beauty in nature isn’t always as easy as it sounds. As a matter of fact, shooting landscape photography properly is one of the most difficult genres out there. For one, our eyes have much greater resolving power and contrast range than do our tiny smartphone sensors and lenses – thus, what we see with our eyes, is not always what we’ll get with our camera phone.
