Want to know how to take better photos with your phone? You’ve come to the right place. Here are 5 tips for taking better photos!
1. Avoid Zooming
While it may be tempting to zoom in on your subject while taking a photo, it’s actually better to move in closer physically. This way, you can avoid the outcome of your image looking grainy or blurry.
2. Lighting is Key
Be aware of the overall lighting situation, as some light will result in better photos than other. If you can take your photo with natural light, that usually turns out the best. And, it’s usually better to add a light source externally than to rely on your flash.
While on the subject of your flash, contrary to belief, using your camera’s flash is better suited for daytime rather in the dark.
3. Focus in
When you have your camera app pulled up and are ready to take the image, make sure that your subject is in clear focus. You can do this by tapping the screen on your phone where you want the image to appear sharp before clicking the capture button.
4. Clean Your Lens
Photo still not turning out right? With all the pockets, purses and compartments your phone has been in and out of, it’s important to keep your lens clean and smudge free. Use a soft lens cloth or handkerchief to wipe it down before taking the photo.
5. Edit, Edit, Edit
Don’t be afraid or intimated by this feature. Cropping, playing with the light exposure, adjusting the color of the image or adding filters can really help enhance the photo overall.
You can do this inside your phone’s photo app, or if you want to take it up a notch, there are tons of different apps you can download from the Apple IOS or Google Play store that will turn you into a pro in no time!
