Below are some of Adrián José Velasquez Figueroa’s tips to get you a better photograph from your smartphone camera.
A word of advice from Adrian that is easy to overlook is to take an extra second to make sure that everything is aligned properly. We take the time to zoom, center and get closer to our subject when we take photos with our camera. The same should be done when we take photographs with our smartphone. The cameras found in smartphones are now more powerful than ever and you should take the time to maximize that new power and technology. Treat the camera in your smartphone just as you would a regular camera and you might just start getting much crisper and better photographs.
Principles of composition should be applied when you take photographs and that includes smartphone pictures. Some of these compositions to keep in mind include, place your subject a third from the side, bottom or top of the photo’s end. Don’t center the horizon as this will create an out of place picture and draw focus away from a subject. Lastly, don’t hesitate to trim photographs. If you think a photo will benefit from a trim, go ahead and do it. Bad photos can be turned into brilliant ones with a simple trim.
Explore the different camera applications that are available. Your standard photograph app in your smartphone can get the job done for a basic photo. However, it will often lack many additional features that options that can help you create a true masterpiece of a photo. Some camera applications can allow you to adjust the shutter speed, and aperture and even the ISO. By changing these parameters, you can generate a smaller depth of field, create sharper quality or blue motion to suit the needs of the scene you are taking with the camera. Read the tutorial or check out a video of camera applications to familiarize yourself with them.
