Smartphone photography tips:
1- One of the basic tips you need to care about while photographing from your smartphone is to hold it steady. Usually you find yourself grabbing for your phone out of your purse to catch a must have photo. Take a deep breath before you shoot and be aware that your hands need to be steady when you press that shutter button on the screen.
2- Always opt for the highest resolution available in your camera settings –This is something I never knew. Unless you are suffering from memory issues, which can be resolved by deleting old pics and downloading them to your computer. How many pictures of your dog in the snow do you really need?
3- Guilty as Charged: do not use your digital zoom on your smartphone. It is recommended to crop your photos later Zooming and digital stretching affects the image quality. If you have the opportunity to take a few shots of your subject, give it a try and see if you can tell a difference with a zoomed in picture and one that you crop later.
4- Use different camera apps and compare the features and editing options available. I have been using an iPhone for a long time and recently had the chance to use a Droid Turbo and was amazed by the different functionalities the camera had. Here are some examples of 3 shots my son took of our dog and changing it up using our phone. Just don’t overdo the edits as we may have here.
5-Make sure your Smart phone camera lens is clean. Remember you have that phone in your hand and rolling around in your purse or brief case. Use a proper lens cleaning wipe and remember to keep it clean so you don’t capture your babies first steps with a huge smudge in the middle.
