Improving your phone photography for your business
Improving your phone photography skills can greatly enhance the quality of your photos. Here are 10 ways to do so:
Clean Your Lens: Your phone's camera lens can accumulate smudges and dirt over time, affecting image clarity. Regularly clean it with a soft, lint-free cloth.
See number 1:
Time of day: Avoid midday sun as it's super harsh, you'll get far better photos shooting in the morning and afternoon light.
Focus and Exposure: Most smartphones allow you to tap on the screen to set the focus and exposure point. Use this feature to ensure the main subject is in focus and properly exposed.
Avoid Digital Zoom: Digital zoom reduces image quality. Instead of zooming, try moving closer to your subject or consider cropping the photo during editing.
Try Different Perspectives: Get creative by shooting from different angles and perspectives. Crouch down, shoot from above, or find unique vantage points to make your photos stand out.
Use Natural Light: Whenever possible, use natural light as it tends to produce better results than artificial lighting.
Steady Your Hand: Blurry photos can result from shaky hands. Use both hands to hold your phone steady, or consider using a tripod or stabilizing accessory. Lots of light helps cameras so the more the merrier!
Master Composition: Familiarise yourself with basic photography composition rules like the rule of thirds, leading lines, symmetry, and framing. These principles can make your photos more visually appealing.
Take more than one: Digital is great becuase you can keep shooting to your hearts content, and when you're done you'll have heaps to choose from and have the ability to pick the best one, not be stuck with just one.
Bonus Tip: Practice and Patience: Improving your photography skills takes time and practice. Don't be discouraged by initial results. There are no rules! So experiment, learn from your mistakes and your successes to keep honing your skills!
