With your iPhone’s and OnePlus’s, everyone today can capture beautiful and aesthetic photographs. Taking photos and capturing images with good contrast, saturation, symmetry, and colors has become way easier than before with the kind of smartphones being manufactured today. In fact, when people now purchase mobile phones, camera quality and pixels always tops the list of their criterion.
So here I’ve got some pro tips to make the photo-clicking experience for all as easy as possible.
1. Camera’s Focus
Today’s mobile cameras automatically choose the foreground as the subject of the photo but based on your perception, you can adjust the focus of the camera by just tapping on the screen where you want the camera to focus.
2. Treat the negative space as positive
Negative space is the extra space between camera and the subject which is being clicked. Embrace that space because if clicked properly, it can help you enhance the visibility of your subject even more.
3. Capture the reflections
Please know that nothing is insignificant while clicking photos. Aesthetics can be found in the most unexpected places and things, and one such thing is reflection. It could be the reflection of anyone.
4. Gridlines and the Rule of Thirds
The “rule of thirds” states that an image should be broken in thirds, both horizontally and vertically, so that it is divided into nine parts in total. You can follow this rule to enhance the quality of your images with your camera’s gridlines. This will help to create a definite balance in your image.
5. Filters and editing apps
No matter how great your mobile camera is, don’t shy away from using image editing apps and filters to enhance, crop, and adjust the photos to make out the best of them.
6. Avoid choosing too many subjects
Chaos is not always good, and instead of choosing too many subjects and making the final result look chaotic, focus on just one subject, and if possible try to have symmetry in your photographs.
7. Be creative and different
Your perspective is an important part of your photograph. Your eye is the camera’s eye and that changes a lot about the image which you have captured.
8. Look for patterns
Nature and surroundings offer a lot which we fail to see in our daily busy life. Look for those patterns and capture them for the world to see.
9. Play with colors
It shows how artistic you can be with your photographs, and how conveniently you can find the perfect blend of colors to capture it.
10. Flash can also be used during the day
Natural light has its own importance in an image, but cameras come with flash for a reason, and enabling you to take photos in the dark is not the only reason. So use flash during the day whenever it is necessary to enhance the photographs.
