You iPhone is an ultimate go-everywhere pocket camera. Almost all iPhone models have a descent and an above average camera. If you haven't yet discovered your iPhone as a camera, then this is the time to do it. With the following tips you can improve your iPhone photography skills. All you need is your iPhone, a subject and some understanding. That's it! You are good to go.
Here are some quick tips to help you take better photos with your iPhone:
1. Shoot a subject in as many ways as you can. The idea here is to shoot a subject from different angles, in different light settings and probably at different times of the day. Also take a horizontal as well as a vertical shot of the subject. You never know which one turns out to be the best of the lot.
2. Your images should clearly convey your intentions. What do you want the viewers to see in the pictures you compose and then make sure your pictures are able to convey it. Without telling anything to the viewers they should be ale to see what is the focus of the subject and what the photographer wants us to see.
3. Simplify your composition. Never add anything in the background that distracts viewers from the main subject. Keep your backgrounds simple and plain. They should compliment your subject instead of taking away all the attention.
4. Evaluate a scene before you click. Look at your iPhone screen and decide if it is the best angle to shoot from. A little evaluation beforehand will definitely help improve your iPhone photography.
5. Remember that HDR is not suitable for each and every situation. If you want to know more about when to use and when not to use HDR, read it here:
6. Better camera means a better picture, it is a myth. A person with a normal point and shoot camera can be a better photographer than a person who has an expensive camera.
7. Be aware of your light source. A photographer is aware of what type, quality and direction of light is required for what kind of photography. It is what makes a photographer truly stand out and not the gear or equipments he use.
8. Too much of anything is harmful. Do not rely completely on process filters and effects. Sometimes no effect is the best effect.
9. Avoid using your iPhone's digital zoom. Or use it only when you absolutely have to get that shot and just can’t get any closer. Using digital zoom may introduce image noise in your picture.
10. Shoot every day. EVERY day. That's the best way to improve your iPhone photography.
