Tips for Great iPhone Photos

You perhaps don't take your DSLR camera with you all along, but your iDevice—along with its built-in camera—is in your pocket far and wide you go. That's why lately the most common way to upload photos to Flickr isn't a camera at all, but the iPhone. As iOS5 offers great photo capabilities, the topic is becoming more actual.

The encounter, for sure, is accomplishing great-looking photos from a gadget principally designed for chatting. If you take a notice of a few tips in mind, you can capture some pretty sharp pictures with your iPhone. We have previously reported some great iPhone photos, you can see the post right here.  Here is what you should consider:

Your phone can handle a lot of situations with aplomb, but it can't shoot every scene you meet. The teeny-weeny image sensor craves light, and does best outdoors, in daylight. For the best experience, follow the same advice that photographers have kept in mind for decades- just let the sun shine in!

Let daylight help your photography. Try to put the sun behind you or over one of your shoulders. Avoid capturing straight into the sun, or you'll radically underexpose your focus. If you're shooting inside, put your back to the window and turn on the lights.

Knowing right settings is not enough for a good photo- you should be able to compose the scene while shooting- that’s what the pros do. Just split your frame into thirds. After dividing conjure up a tic-tac-toe board—and put your focus on one of those lines, rather than in the middle of the screen- that’s somewhat banal. But be careful here- keep in mind that nothing ruins a photo like a skewed horizon. Keep an eye on the background to ensure that nothing is "rising" out of the top of someone's head.

Run the camera quicker- optimize your home screen so you can start capturing with a single tap. This ensures that you avoid losing out on many great photo opportunities. Fortunately, iPhones allow moving your camera into more convenient location of your screen. You can either apply to have camera on the first screen, or put it in the quick-access area at the bottom of the screen. You can even resign buttons to launch your camera faster.

The most common reason you keep getting get blurry photos with your phone is that it's light and thin, and awkward to hold compared with a full-size camera. So the solution is to keep the phone steady while capturing. Grip the phone as motionless as you can, with both hands, and keep your elbows put in to your sides for sustenance.
