Before the days of smartphones -- if you can remember such a time -- taking a great photo was a labor-intensive process. You'd have buy a fancy camera and editing software for your desktop computer, and invest some serious time and energy into learning how to use them.

But, thanks to our mobile devices and the editing apps that come with them, we can now take high-quality photos and edit them without too many bells and whistles.

 

How to take best photo from your phone : 10 tips & tricks

 

  • Basic Tips:-


1. Have a good source of light.
This is the heart to take good quality photos with phone. Since you are using a smartphone therefore you don't have much options to make your shot look awesome. In such a case availability of enough light will do the job.

Make sure to avoid harsh lightning because it can snatch the beauty of your shot.

2. Use gridlines to balance your shot.
A photographic composition theory says "an image should be broken down into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, so you have nine parts in total".



 Actually if you take gridlines in your work than the possibility of a good quality photo with a good interaction is increased. So, make sure to use gridlines in your photos from today.

3. Bring the object in Focus.(only one subject)
This is the another main thing to take best photo from your smartphone. All you have to do is click and hold the place in your screen where your targeted subject is and a square or circle will appear when you are done.

This will also lock exposure along with the focus making photography more easy for you.
Actually now a days smartphone automatically focus on the main object but controlling the camera module of your smartphone manually gives more better results.

4. Use textures in your shots.
 Sometimes photography doesn't needs much attention. A better photo can be clicked if you are using some textures in the background of your targeted subject.

 At some conditions you can also use negative space for your photos if you love to do nature photography. Well, Negative space is a gap between your subject and background, say your hand and sky.

5. Use HDR mode.
Basically HDR stands for High Dynamic range which is a great option for mobile photography. It balances the dynamic range in your photos and preserve the details in the shot.
So, always make sure to use HDR mode whenever dealing with smartphone. And, most important thing don't shake the phone while using HDR feature.

6. Handle image perspective.
Most of the people click their photos just from the front "facing the subject". Ya! that can be amazing for some of the photos of nature and animals. But, if you wanna make your shot more interacting than you should change the angles of your camera.
*Angles are the key of photography.

 

  • Pro Tips :-


7. Use Pro mode & Take more shots.
Since you are using a smartphone with limited Controls. I recommend using Pro mode or something that can give you manual controls on your camera. You can also use third party camera apps like Open Camera.

*Try to click photos in landscape mode.

Secondly, try to take atleast 20 best shots for a particular subject and short them out accordingly. This will give a better and fine filteration to your photos.

8. Use Macro Photography technique and avoid Zooming in.
This one is the best tip for mobile photography. You can use macro technique (shooting from the nearest distance) to enhance the quality of your photos.


Try not to zoom-in because that can cause pictures to get pixelated or noised, you can click photos from proper distance.

9. Use Natural light.
Using artificial light in photography is good but sometime it can't give the feel you want. So, to click a great picture try to use natural light (generally in morning & evening at 5).


Natural light is much more engaging and gives a better connection to the viewer looking to the photo.

10. Use Your flashlight.
Well, I don't recommend using flash for clicking photos but sometime it can improve your photography. Try to use flash together with the natural light. If you are thinking to use flash in night photography then don't because it will vanish all the beauty of the shot.

 

  • Bonus Tip :-


Please try to edit your photos using apps and soft-wares to give it more better look and feel.
