iPhone spy camera. But that doesn’t have to be the case. With some photo taking smarts and some finesse, you can take high quality photos with your phone without a lot of sweat or tears. Here’s how to take better photos with your iPhone.
Good lighting is key when taking a photo with any kind of camera. Make sure you always have strong lighting any time you try to take a picture. Don’t just rely on your camera’s flash. Try opening up a window or turning some lights on. Your images will be stronger and you’ll have shadows and contrast to play with.
Rule of Three
Use the rule of three when framing a shot. Your iPhone has a grid option available. Take advantage of it. In general, the rule of thirds means that if you split a photo into 9 squares, the most interesting parts of the photo should be happening in the intersection of these grids. Activate your phone’s grid mode to help you frame the shot just right.
Turn Off Your Flash
The sad truth is that your iPhone’s flash just isn’t very powerful. Your flash is basically just a small IED light. And sometimes it can add weird hues to your phone. You’re better off going without the flash and just following our earlier tip to try improving your room’s light or relying on better, natural light to do the work for you.
Don’t Directly Open the App
Opening the camera app can be a waste of time. Not only do you have to unlock your phone and locate the app but you have to wait for everything to load. This means that it’s all too easy to miss an important shot. Don’t do this. Instead, pull up your phone’s Control Panel or open up the Camera shortcut on the bottom right corner of the screen when you’re in Lock Screen. The Camera will load almost instantly even when your phone is locked. But someone who errantly grabs your phone and begins snapping pictures can’t access any of your other photos unless they pop in the passcode, making this a secure and safe option for quick photos.
Burst mode is a handy, new feature that helps make it easier to snap action shots. Basically, you’re just taking a bunch of shots at once, saving you from having to anguish over the perfect angle. To enable burst mode, just hold down the center button and relax.
Exposure is key to a good shot. But even when your exposure’s lacking, you can adjust it by adjusting the yellow exposure slide that should pop up next to your focus square while taking a photo. You can either dial up the slide, which will allow more exposure or dial down, lessening exposure, depending on your needs.
Use Your Volume Button
Having trouble taking a steady photo? Use your phone’s volume button. This will help prevent shaking. If you’re taking a photo and wearing Apple earbuds, you can even use the volume button on the chord to help you snap a shot if you’re really having trouble keeping your phone from shaking while taking your selfie.
Taking a photo can be fun and easy on your iPhone. By keeping these tips in mind, you can help overcome technical limitations and ultimately up your photo game.
