There are trends in mobile photography as well. Like Instagram. It is become very common, to click via Instagram, apply filters and then share it with your friends. Like this, there are many mobile photography trends. The smartphone cameras have been getting some impressive upgrades since last 1 -2 years. And that has replaced carrying your digital cameras around. If you are one of those who click more through phone than a usual camera, following tips might help you improve your mobile photography skills.
1. Shoot in HDR ( High Dynamic Range): Most camera phones these days have an option called HDR. An HDR mode on your camera shoots three photos at different exposure settings; namely high, standard and low. Then your phone automatically composes a sharp, bright and colorful picture. 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 fo human portraits enhances wrinkles and other marks on the face.
2. Shoot in Burst Mode : Burst mode will help you capture photos of kids, pets, or anything in action. It gives you an opportunity to capture a range of shots to choose from. Shooting in normal mode is slower as compared to burst mode. Plus it is best to capture action.
3. Use a remote shutter: The 'Capture' button on your display screen is not the only way to snap a picture. You can use the volume up-down button to quickly capture or in some brands you can use your headphones/earphones (with inline volume control). They too work great as a remote shutter.
4. Lock Focus and exposure : In case of smartphone cameras, when you tap the screen, it sets the focus & exposure. But the setting is lost as soon as you or the subject move from the location. It becomes really important to lock the focus and exposure for your camera phone. To do so, tap and hold the screen until the setting locks.
5. Keep Still : Keeping still while taking picture is one of the most important tip for smartphone photography. It helps you through any low light picture moment. As in case of any photography, a steady camera produces better and clearer pictures. Most of phone cameras lack 'shutter lag'. Shutter lag is defines as the time between when you press the shutter and when the camera takes the shot. So make sure you hold the camera long enough to ensure it doesn’t click when you are taking it away from the subject.
6. Keep Your Lens Clean : We generally keep our mobile phones in pocket or in purse. There are tiny dust particles called 'grime' that lives deep in the fabric. A filth that enters your camera lens and result in hazy, dark images that never look good. No matter how many filters or effects you apply, but they remain looking dull and low quality. Fingerprints are another very common problem on camera lenses. Clean it with help of ear-buds, soft cloth or eyeglass cleaning cloth.
7. Use the highest resolution possible on your camera phone: There are some phone that offers you a flexibility to choose a resolution to take photos. Just to inform people who ignore screen resolution, that higher your resolution the clearer your shot will be. But higher resolution also results in bigger file size.
