There have been major advancements in camera photography in the past decade. The phone camera is able to do so much more today, that it is nothing less than a DSLR if used correctly. With the necessary photo-editing apps, even professional photographers can create the best photographs using a smartphone. There are several additional photography apps which offer features such as exposure, shutter speed, and editing tools which can provide similar quality photographs as in DSLR. Here are a few tips that can be helpful in learning to click and edit photographs like professionals, which can be used by anyone using a smartphone.
Knowing your phone camera settings
A default app or an external app on a smartphone has manual settings which a user can switch to for clicking the best pictures. One should move beyond the comfort of automatic settings and explore all the features which can enhance the quality of the picture by a lot. Playing with the settings will give an estimated idea
of which settings will be best for the right lighting, focus, exposure, white balance, and ISO. Some cameras have exposure and focus working together to create an appropriate photo, but with little tweaks in the setting one can actually get a better result while shooting different situations.
Higher resolution will always provide better picture quality even after zooming. Worrying about the size of the picture will never let any photographer create better images. Also, keep in mind that zooming is the last option to consider while clicking a picture. To get the best results, the best way is to click a picture with the subject as close as possible. Keeping an external drive to store the pictures can solve the problem of big file sizes. Cloud storage is also an alternative for storing images.
Using the right side
Front cameras are only good for taking selfies. They are not made for clicking high resolutions pictures and usually have low megapixels. The back camera, on the other hand, is equipped with more megapixels and can click higher resolution pictures. Also, the front camera is basically difficult to handle while trying to find the right focus while being on the same side of the frame.
Using external lenses
Although the integrated camera lenses are pretty much good enough to take good pictures, external lenses can add to the quality of pictures. Maintaining the camera lens is also necessary and needs to be cleaned from time to time. Lenses should always be free of fingerprint stains and dust accumulation. There are micro, macro and fish-eye lenses available for attachment which can help in taking high-quality pictures of small and distance photographs.
Using composition rules
All professional photographers implement composition rules, such as Rule of Third, Leading lines, Scale, or framing to create marvels
. Learning these rules can help a lot for the new learners to click good pictures. Find the right objects which are visionary and click the different perspectives of the subject to increase the meaning of the photographs, which automatically makes it a good picture.
