Better Smartphone Photos – A+D Tip No.1


Light your subject well! The better lit your subject is the clearer your image is likely to be. Avoid shooting into bright lights as you’ll end up with subjects that are silhouetted. Get Close to Your Subject! One of the most common mistakes with camera phone images is that their subject ends up being a tiny, unrecognizable object in the distance. Fill your view finder with your subject to save having to zoom in on the subject in editing it later (which decreases quality even more). Conversely, getting too close on some model camera phones creates distortion and focusing issues.



Keep Still! As with all digital photography, the more steady your camera phone is when taking your shot the clearer your image will be. If needed, lean your camera phone or your hand against a solid object when taking shots. Edit Images Later! It can be fun to use your camera phone’s editing and effects, editing pictures later on your computer produces much better quality images.
