In this video we take a look at the PhotoPills photography app. We explain what it is and go over a few of the features to see how this app can really help you capture some amazing images.

I have talked before on my vlog about how planning and preparation is key to photography and PhotoPills is an amazing tool to do that. If you you shoot landscapes, sunsets, astro photography, long exposures, star trails or time-lapses then this app is a must for you. Essentially it is a collection of tools that makes planning your shoots easy and includes things like an exposure calculator, a time-lapse calculator and tools to let you know where the sun, moon and Milky Way will be at certain times of the year and in a given location.

Sadly this is not available for Android yet but they are in the process of making an android version now that should be out by the end of the year.

The app has some excellent features and including an augmented reality mode. If you find yourself in a beautiful location that you think might make a nice shot, you can launch the augmented reality mode and it will show exactly where the sun will be at a particular time and where it will set.

I couldn’t live without this now. It is definitely the best photography app for an iPhone. It saves me so much time and basically all my research and planning for a shot can be done in the app. If you spend some time getting to know the app, follow some of PhotoPills own excellent tutorials you really will see your photography move to the next level and you’ll be capturing amazing images that no one else has.

What it doesn’t do is control the weather though.

It costs about £7.99/$9.99 but that is he most straightforward £7.99/$9.99 you will ever spend. Check it out now.

Thank you for the review; personally, I really like Sun Surveyour better; it’s easier to find Milky Way center throughout the year at my favorite spots.
