Have you ever walked through a place and thought: "It's too bad the Moon isn't RIGHT there... would have made a great photo!"? What about the Sun? And the Milky Way? Well, now you can just let your imagination fly and calculate when this specific magic moment happens in just a few seconds! It can tell you exactly when the sun/moon will rise over a distant mountain (or lake, tree, etc) as viewed from a specific location, or when magic hours will occur there.
No matter the type of photography you love: Landscape, Milky Way, Moon, Sunrise, Sunset, Architecture, Star Trails, Drone, Meteor Showers, Solar eclipse, Lunar Eclipse, Time lapse, Wedding, Portrait or Travel... PhotoPills is your photography planning app. It helps you plan your photos ahead of time… So you’re always at the right place at the right time to capture the best photo possible.
The 3D Augmented Reality views are wonderful tools to help you plan the paths of Sun, Moon and Milky Way when scouting a potential photo, film or time-lapse location. Travel and discover new places with their database of more than 10,500 Points of Interest all around the world linked into Wikipedia, including waterfalls, castles, abandoned places, monuments.
The app is available for both Android and iOS, and does seem to be a Swiss Army Knife for planning where and when to be for those great photos. I think I'm going to try this out, as it certainly can take the guesswork out of when to arrive somewhere to get the type of photo you want.
