By now, everyone knows how to take a picture with a smart phone, right? You just press a button and boom! A snapshot of your life is in the palm of your hand.
But you can take GREAT pics with your smart phone, too, and not just fuzzy snaps of your salad or your dog sleeping.
So, what are some tips for taking great pics with your smart phone? Here are some things to try. Read on:
Whether you use your smart phone’s editing features or buy an app that edits them for you, taking a few minutes to edit your pictures (adjusting brightness or shadows or cropping) can make a huge difference in a so-so shot or an Instagram worthy masterpiece.
If you are using a phone that is 3 or more years old, you are not using the latest technology available to take great pics with your smart phone. Things have advanced a lot in the last few years, allowing even the most amateur of amateurs to take amazing snaps. Consider an upgrade! We’d love to help you choose the best smart phone – and camera – for your budget and needs.
It goes without saying that a dirty lens won’t yield the best pictures, so make sure yours is properly cleaned every now and then!
For most of us, zooming in on a smart phone doesn’t always give the best shots. So when you can, don’t use it. Some of the newer phones are better, but it’s almost always a good idea to move physically closer to the subject of your picture than to use zoom.
To that end, try to avoid using your smart phone’s flash and try enhancing the available light first. Flash can wash out your subject or make it look harsh. Most smart phones don’t have a great flash.
