We live in a digital age where smartphones have become our go-to cameras. Whether you’re a photography enthusiast or simply love capturing memories, these five easy smartphone photography hacks will help you take better pictures:
Clean Your Lens
This sounds obvious, but this is the first step to taking better pictures on your phone. We constantly touch our phones and have them in our hands as we move from place to place, so your phone’s camera lens is bound to get dirty.
Take a moment to wipe your lens with a soft cloth or a microfiber cloth to ensure crystal-clear shots. A clean lens can significantly enhance the quality of your smartphone photographs.
Look for the perfect natural light
Lighting plays a vital role when it comes to professional photography, when it comes to taking pictures on your smartphone it’s no different.
Whenever possible, make use of natural light as it brings out the best in your subjects. Avoid harsh direct sunlight, which can create strong shadows and overexposure. Early morning and late afternoon light always gives you the best results as the light is softer and more appealing to your subject.
Experiment with perspectives
This might sound too ‘advanced’ for a beginner or someone who is just taking pictures for the fun of it, but play around with your angles! Don’t be afraid to get creative and explore while taking smartphone photos. Get down low for a ground-level shot, try shooting from above, or play with reflections and shadows.
Don’t forgot to edit
Even the best smartphone photographers rely on editing apps to enhance their images further. Whether you want to adjust exposure, tweak colours, apply filters, or crop your images, these apps offer a range of editing tools to take your photos to the next level.
Popular options include Snapseed, VSCO, and Adobe Lightroom Mobile, among others.
