5 Essential photography tips for iPhotographers

Last Updated :

The number of iPhotographers are increasing day by day. In fact iPhones are the most popular cameras on Flickr community, the reason behind is its extensive use and easy to use features. iPhotography has come a long way if we talk about the features and functions offered. The latest iPhones are jam packed with some exciting camera functions and features that are better than any point and shoot cameras. If a user is not satisfied with the features or added filters and effects, he can download from 1000s of paid & free photo editing apps from the Apple App Store. These apps offer additional features and editing tools to those who take iPhotography very very seriously.

If you too are one of those serious type of iPhotographer, then you must take a look at the following essential iPhotography tips. These tips will help you improve iPhone photography skills.

Shoot in well-lit environment : Light is the most important element in all types of photography. iPhone and iPads struggle a lot in low-light conditions. When shooting with an iPhone aim for a well-lit space. If you are shooting in low light, your pictures will look dull. However, shooting in bright light will make your pictures look over-exposed.

Focus manually : You can manually focus the camera by simple tapping the subject on your iPhone screen. The feature is pretty easy and simple to use. Focusing on the right subject is a great way to draw viewer's attention to a particular part of the picture.

Clean the lens : Sometimes dirt and filth on your camera lens can result in lack of sharpness in your pictures. Get it cleaned or clean it yourself. You may find fingerprints, fiber particles, dirt or dust causing the blur effect on your pictures. In order to take those razor sharp pictures from an iPhone make sure the lens is clean.

Shoot in HDR(whenever applicable): You should always use this mode while shooting landscape, or in a situation where the sun is right behind the subject. You should avoid HDR mode while shooting any action shot and for human portraits. Using HDR for human portraits enhances wrinkles and other marks on the face. The most efficient use of HDR imaging is to dramatically increase the details in the image, enhance colors and even-out the exposure.

Don't zoom, move closer instead : The camera lens in your iPhone offer a digital zoom. Which means that the lens does not move physically to bring the subject closer, rather it crops the full screen resolution. You must avoid zoom function because in return you'll get a smaller and unclear picture. Using the iPhone camera zoom is compromising with the image quality.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
