We hope you have already seen our general instructions on what to capture and how to take great images. Here are some extra tips for capturing while walking.
- Try to keep the camera in line with the horizon. It's a bit harder when walking compared to other modes of moving, but the tilt lines on the camera screen will help you.
- Keep a consistent angle of the camera. Most times you would keep it pointing straight ahead, although sometimes you may want to capture e.g. at a 90- or 45-degree angle with respect to your direction of moving.
- You can try putting the phone in a pouch around your neck or taped on your chest. That should help keep the camera steady.
- You might also try to use a selfie stick which might be more comfortable to hold than the phone itself.
- If you keep the camera steady facing forward, you can use the setting of locking the compass angle forward—then each image will be “facing” the next one on the map when you upload (and not affected by any disturbances in your device’s compass).
- Normally you would use an automatic capture mode. However, you can also use the manual mode if you for some reason want custom control over when an image is captured.
- For example, the manual mode might be a good idea if your images turn out blurry—try stopping for each image you take.
