Tips for Taking Better Smartphone Photos

The notion that you much have the best came in your smartphone for taking picture is not as relevant as the talent to capture good picture. If you have good CAM but you are not a good photographer, it is of no use then.

Daily, 70 million photos are uploaded on Instagram, hence if you are also a social media addict then this article is going to help you a lot.

While most smartphones don’t have the large sensors, fast lenses and long zooms of stand-alone cameras, there are ways to get around these shortcomings to take fantastic shots. There’s plenty you can do when it comes to setting up your shot and picking the right lighting and settings.

  • Composition: Before capturing, first set up your image.
  • Don’t Put your Subject Dead Center: Turn on the grid view (in the camera settings menu for Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and Android; in the general settings menu for iPhone), which defines the camera view into nine squares.
  • Lighting: Adjusting light of CAM in another important step for taking pictures. As smartphone cameras have tiny sensors compared to DSLRs, so they capture less light and, therefore, less detail. It’s not as noticeable on the smartphone screen, but you may see some blurriness when blown up on a computer monitor. You need good lighting to get good pictures on a smartphone – or a good app.
  • Adjust the Exposure Setting: Life doesn’t always hand us perfect natural lighting. If a scene is too dim, increase the exposure to allow more light into the sensor; if the scene is too bright, decrease the exposure accordingly.
  • Use HDR mode in Low Light
  • Download an App for Long Exposures: Almost all Operating Systems have creative Apps for “Image Editing”, which are free as well. So you can easily download them from stores.
  • Focus: The area that your camera focuses on is related to the size of aperture, which is adjustable on DSLR cameras but isn’t adjustable on majority of smartphones. So you need to adjust the focus of your Camera as well.

Last but important step…

  • Edit, Edit and Edit: Use Apps like Snapseed (on iTunes or Gogle play), Photoshop Express etc. for editing your images. It will definitely make a huge difference.
