You know the experience. You trek off to some great view, or deep lush forest, or vast scenic view, grab your phone and say, "I just have to get a picture of this." You snap a shot or two, and look at the screen, and it looks absolutely nothing like where you're standing.

Backpacker magazine shares some great times from adventure and sports photographers Matt & Agnes Hage, who offer tips about seeking light, exposure and composition, and a few in-phone editing techniques to make things look amazing.
