How to Take Better Photos With Your Phone

Gone are the days when you had to buy a fancy camera to get yourself clicked. Thanks to the smartphones which now come with all the required features to get high-quality images and editing software.

Taking a perfect picture requires the art of adjusting the angles, light, background, and a lot more. So, here we are; presenting you the secret tips and tricks to get those Insta worthy pictures for yourself on both Android and iOS.

How to Take Better Photos With Your Phone

Clean the Lens

First things first, be sure that the lens of your mobile camera is squeaky clean. A single spot on the lens can result in a blurry image, which is off course not needed. A simple cotton cloth can do this for you.

Make Use of the Physical Click Button

Especially while clicking a selfie, people struggle to tap on the virtual click button in the middle of the screen. Well, the physical volume buttons on the side of your mobile device can be a savior for you. This will also help you keep your hands steady with a perfectly wide angle.

Look for Support

A precise and sharp image calls for a steady hand. One can always use a mobile tripod or its alternates like a wall, table, your bookshelf, or maybe a mantelpiece.

If you are trying to click a full picture for yourself, use the self-timer available in both Android and iOS. This will enable you to position your phone at the right angle with the help of rigid support.

Capture in Natural Light

Lighting is considered as the fundamental element of photography. To get the best shot, make sure that the main objects in the image are well lit. Although, there is no standard approach to fix the lighting in your image; one thing that you can avoid is excessive lighting behind the object. Unless you are trying a silhouette effect.

Apply the Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds helps in the correct alignment of subjects and objects in your picture.

Enable the Grid in Viewfinder option, your screen will be divided into nine rectangular sections. Now, try to place the important elements of your image along the lines or at their intersection.

Tap to Change Focus

Changing the focus helps in exposing and highlighting the selected spot. This could be simply done by tapping the screen at the spot where you want the focus.

Apply Auto-HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) helps to keep the darkest and lightest parts of the image in proportion. The latest versions of Android and iOS have the auto-HDR mode set as default. However, you can locate the toggle switch for the same on the shutter screen.

Click Multiple Pictures

The application of this method goes without saying. Click multiple pictures in one go and choose the best later. To do so, you can take advantage of the in-built burst mode available in both Android and iOS.

To use photo burst on iOS or Android, you have to simply press and hold the shutter button till the time you want to take pictures.  In the Android phones, you can enable or disable the smart burst option from the settings tab.

Now that the secrets of clicking the best pictures for yourself on your mobile are out in the open; go, click and be the photographer you want to be. Make sure to stay patient and steady while clicking.
