Your smartphone can’t be as good as a Professional camera But still, you can take great photos using it. Most people just don’t do it the right way and Here are a few tips for you:
1. Prefer Cropping instead of Zooming
Many people just zoom if they want to take a large shot of something. It doesn’t help. The zoom option in most smartphones only gives you a digital enlargement of the view. Simply put, the quality is reduced. The better option is to take the photo the normal way, without zooming. After that, crop it to include only the desired things in the photo. This gives you a better quality than merely zooming.
2. Make sure the light is sufficient
Poor light can ruin your photography. You can’t have the artificial lightening effects all the time. Using flash of your phone is not a good idea either. So prefer natural light. And one more thing, while taking photos, prefer the positions in which the light is coming from behind the camera and falling on the subject.
3. Learn to use the features of your phone
Most people take the photos using the default settings of their smartphones. There are probably a lot more features in it than you know. Learn about using them. Also, experiment with different features like color, brightness, contrast, ISO etc. Don’t rely on the defaults alone. Different shots will require different features. In some, high brightness is required, while in others you may need to change color settings. You get the idea.
4. Edit your photos
You made the best use of your smartphone. But still, photos don’t look great. Now you have to edit them. It is better to transfer them in your computer and use some editing software like Photoshop. It will take some time for sure. But you will see that, not only it is fun to edit, but also the results are awesome.
5. Check out some apps
There are a lot of apps available that can improve your photography. They give you access to features beyond your phone’s normal settings. Editing apps can also be very helpful. But before downloading and using them, make sure to do a little research about the best ones.
If there is dust on the lens, even a highly expensive camera will give a poor shot. Always ensure your phone camera is dust free and clean. Use a soft cloth to avoid scratches. Also don’t put your fingers on it, it will leave fingerprints.
You see, it is not difficult to take a great shot from your smartphone. You just need to apply the tricks mentioned above. Of course, you need some practice. So go ahead, give it a try.
