1. Shoot in burst mode : Burst mode is a very convenient way to take multiple shots of a subject. It takes one shot after the other with just a press of button. To activate it, just hold down the shutter button for about a second or two and then iPhone will start taking pictures one after the other. The number of photos that you click in burst mode depends on which iPhone and what iOS version you are using. Like iPhone 5S allows you to take 10 shots in a second.
2. Set focus and exposure setting: Exposure is one of the most important element in any kind of photography. Similarly in iPhone photography too, it holds an important place. On an iPhone you can simply set focus by tapping anywhere on the screen. If you don't do it, your iPhone will automatically take something in focus for you. So it is better to set focus yourself. There may come a time when auto focus results in blur and un-clear pictures, so better you adjust it before hand than depending on iPhone. In most cases tapping the screen where your main subject is will do the trick, but feel free to experiment!
3. Lock focus and exposure: If you are not into the habit of setting focus and exposure every time you click a picture with your iPhone, you can lock it once for all. Just tap & hold the screen where you want to set the focus and exposure for a second or two. A larger square will appear where your finger is along with a yellow AE/AF LOCK sign.
4. You can use volume up-down button or your earphones for a shutter release : The volume up-down buttons located on the side of your iPhone work brilliantly as shutter release.
5. Turn on the grid: those of you who know about "Rule-of-thirds" know what a grid is. However, if you not then a grid divides your screen in nine equal squares (consisting two horizontal and two vertical lines). The horizontal and two vertical lines that divide the screen in three equal parts.
