Even if you have an amazing DSLR, you’d definitely agree with me when I say that carrying that big beauty around with you everywhere can be a somewhat of a hassle sometimes.
You find yourself facing a dilemma:
Luckily, smartphone manufacturing companies took notice of this serious problem. They started equipping their phones with great cameras, allowing you to shoot beautiful photography without going through all the troubles of carrying a DSLR with you everywhere.
Is having a smartphone with a great camera enough to capture truly great photographs?
People with high-end smartphones still complain about the bad quality of the pictures they capture.
So what is the missing link here? There are some phone picture tips which can help your job become easier and will take your phone photography skills to the next level.
1. The Lens:
From being in your pants pockets to your purse/bag to being in your hands, it does not take much to see why the lens of the camera would accumulate some dirt. This dirt on the lens then prevents the light from entering the sensors of the camera and you will end up clicking blurry, spotty pictures. To avoid this just take a soft lens cloth and clean the lens every time you are going to take a picture.
2. The Light Matters:
Good lighting is extremely important and vital for good pictures. This is why daytime outdoor shots usually come out so much better because of the abundance of light available. If you are shooting indoors try taking pictures by turning on the lights in the room; or moving towards a room with adequate natural light.
3. Get Closer:
Unlike professional cameras, photos taken from most smartphone cameras have low resolution. Instead of zooming into the object you are taking a photo of just bring the camera close to it yourself.
The next time you’re looking to take a quick family picture, don’t forget these quick simple tips. Using these phone photography tips, you will notice just how much significantly your mobile pictures will improve.
