Dragonfly Photography with Galaxy Z Flip3 5G

Malaysia Dragonfly Photography

Since I have been using the flip phone for a few weeks now, I decided to try some macro photography with the Z Galaxy Flip 3 at one of the community forests near my place.

I usually like to go to Kiara Park to test my photography but only on weekdays due to the large crowds on the weekends; therefore, the photos here are taken over several visited there in September 2021.

What I like about this flip phone is that it is small and easy to keep in my pocket and not worry much about it.

And the convenience of it flipping makes it different when wanting to use the phone. Well, I have to admit that I am still getting used to the flipping.

Anyway, let me share some macro photos of dragonflies taken with the Flip3 5G phone below and also to add, I took all the shots handheld. There was no tripod involved.

How to do Close-Up Photography with Galaxy Z Flip3 5G?

To be honest, this is something that anyone can do, and the person just needs to have steady hands and patience for this.

I have had years of photography training, and one of the most important things is that you need to be focused and have steady hands when approaching the subject.

The trick is not to rush in but to approach slowly without startling the subject. Holding the Z Flip3 5G, I brought the phone in as close as 4-5 cm to the dragonflies.

Once you get in a comfortable range, do not use too many hand movements, or you will scare the subject, and it will fly away.

I would recommend you set the circular white floating button on the screen to where you can easily access it with your thumb while holding the flip phone. This is probably one of the easiest ways.

I also open up the flip phone to landscape mode for easier handling when taking photos. You can also use it vertically if you like. Again, just set the floating white button to the desired area to snap.

Other Reviews of Galaxy Series Phones

I have also done several reviews of other smartphones over the years, and the original Z Flip review was one of them.

I recently did a quick review of the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, highlighting some significant points on general usage of the flip phone.

Plus, I have been reviewing smartphone photography using Galaxy S series phones for landscape, food and travel.


The photos above were all taken using the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G phone at Kiara Park in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. Except for the last photo of the phone, which was with a Galaxy S10 Plus.

I chose to explore Kiara Park in TTDI due to the close proximity to my home and the overall balance of flora and fauna in one controlled environment.

This is also my first time doing dragonfly photography with the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G smartphone; I usually use a DSLR for my macro or close-up photography.
