Tips to Take Good Photos With Your Phone

October 15, 2019 04:01 PM

It’s no surprise that thousands of pictures are being uploaded every day, especially on social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. Thanks to the never-ending trend and the improved camera in our smartphones. Smartphones have evolved greatly. One particular feature which constantly keeps getting upgraded is the camera. There are a lot of Android and iPhone mobile sets in the market with improved camera versions which makes even the lamest of pictures appear stunningly great. Of course, these camera phones come at a heavy price as well, but there are cheaper phones which have a decent camera quality. If you are a type of person who can’t stick to one phone set for a long run there is always an option to get mobile phones on rent.

 Although you have a Smartphone with good camera quality, sometimes it becomes impossible to get high-quality pictures without the popular camera apps. However, here are few tips and tricks which might help you get those quality images from your default camera.


1.  Keep your camera steady

Even a slight shake may spoil the entire picture, hence it is necessary to keep the camera steady to capture that image. Steady mode increases the sharpness of the picture and reduces blurriness. It is always recommended to use external support such as mobile tripods instead of completely depending on human hands. 


2.  Use button to click

Keeping your phone steady and trying to tap the screen to capture the image is more challenging than it sounds. It often wobbles the phone when you are taking the shot. The best solution to this is to use a physical button to click (not every smartphone has this option, but a majority of them do).


3.  Keep your lens clean

Smartphones do not come with a default camera cove, which leads to a lot of dust accumulation and other stuff. The Sludge caused by the due to lint and fingerprints may lead to poor quality images.


4.  Avoid Flashlight

Since the LED used for the rear camera is located just an inch away from the lens, the flashlight may result in blurry results. It is always best practice to make the most use of natural light. Although using natural light might not be possible from a particular angle under most of the situations, there are other options such as repositioning the lens, changing the angle or repositioning the subject itself. In case you are looking for a silhouette effect, place your subject towards a bright light.


5.  Avoid using Zoom  

The zoom feature in cameras is completely different from the ones which are used in Smartphones. When zoomed using a camera, the inner opticals are adjusted by the lens which enables it to increase or decrease the focal length. However, the zoom-in Smartphone cameras function entirely different. It only makes the image appear closer simply by just cropping the image, making the image less precise.

 Although high-end cameras are always the best choice to get quality images, it is not always convenient and comfortable carrying it around all the time. Moreover, it is always good to have these mobile photography skills. Along with these skills, it is also important to have some basic knowledge about editing the images. Although there are many editing apps available, it is best done over a laptop. If you are not a consistent laptop user, you can always get laptops for rent.

This will also help you avoid unnecessary expenditures. The key to good photography is learning and practising, so take that phone out and start clicking.
