However, Lumia 950 is designed to capture great images even at low light regions and will fetch you some amazing shots even if you decide to swim in deeper.

Tip 2- Trusting the Camera

You can safely go completely automatic. Lumia 950 is an intelligent smartphone and adjusts very well to changing light conditions. It manages white balance and exposure and other necessary settings very efficiently.

Tip 3- DNG Mode Shooting

Shooting in the Digital Negative mode allows you control over your pictures post production. It takes up a lot of space, so carry sufficient storage space.

Tip 4- Getting Close to the Subject

To avoid hazy or unclear photos, try to get as close as possible to the subject of your photo shoot as possible without putting yourself in harm’s way or frightening the subject away.
