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 driving.
- When placing the mount, try to make sure that neither the mount itself nor any parts of the car are in the camera view. Sometimes this can be hard, depending on the car, but a position near the rear view mirror usually works best.
- The position of the mount also affects potential glare from the dashboard (that will be visible in your images). You can also try a few other tricks for reducing glare:
- Remove any lighter objects from your dashboard.
- Cover the dashboard with a black matt cloth (like felt).
- Try a DIY polarizer filter. You can use a lens from disposable 3D glasses from the cinema - cut it out and tape it over your camera lens. You might want to try rotating and turning it around to find the position that works best for you.
- On longer drives, you may want to use a phone charger in your car, and have extra micro-SD cards to expand the memory available for capture (if your device supports it).
- Avoid capturing in the rain and in low-light situations. The results from this will be even worse in the car compared to other capturing modes.
