Mobile PHOTOGRAPHY are extremely portable and whether you’re a photographer or not you definitely have
a mobile phone with you everywhere you go. Capturing photography with a mobile phone can be really amazing if you keep these things in mind while shooting.
1. CLEAN THE CAMERA LENS
In Mobile Photography the most important thing is your phone and your Phone spends a lot of time in your pocket, a bag or in your hand, and as a result it will get dirty. Dirt, dust, grease and fingerprints on your lens will have a big effect on the quality of your photos. There’s no point trying to take great photos if the glass of the lens is dirty. It will block light from entering the camera’s sensor and will leave smudges, blurs or dust spots on your images. A clean lens will ensure you get sharp, clear images with your Phone. Use a soft lens cloth.
2. SET THE FOCUS
The most important thing to look out for
when taking a photo is to make sure that
your subject is in sharp focus. To set the
focus on the iPhone camera you simply
tap the screen where your subject is in the frame. A small yellow square will appear to
confirm the focus point. If your subject is moving around, make sure you tap the screen just before you take the shot to ensure that they are in focus.
3. ADJUST EXPOSURE MANUALLY
When you tap on the subject to focus on them, the camera will also use the focus point to set the exposure in the shot.
Exposure simply refers to how bright or
dark the image is allowing the camera to set exposure on the focus point isn’t always ideal. For example, if the subject is in a dark area of the frame, this could lead to the overall image being over-exposed (too
bright) or vice versa.
4. ALWAYS USE 3:4 GRID
Getting focus and exposure right is crucial in photography, but composition is equally important. Without good composition, your photo isn’t likely to be very eye-catching. The rule of thirds is one of the most useful
composition techniques in photography.
It’s an important concept to learn as it can
be used in all types of photography to
produce images which are more engaging and better balanced.
5. USE HDR WHEN REQUIRED
Whenever you saw the high contrast view then you should ON the HDR mode on your phone which helps in increasing the dynamic range of the picture. Whenever you use the HDR mode it clicks three images and then merges them in a single picture and helps to convert the overexposed picture in perfectly exposed
with the high dynamic range.
6. SHOOT FROM DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES
You should always look at alternative points of view when taking your photos at any location. Most beginners will take shots from a standing position, but the beauty of the mobile is that it’s so small and light it can be used in places that a bigger camera wouldn’t work. You should consider getting down low and shooting from ground level.
7. TAKE MULTIPLE SHOTS
If you see something that catches your eye don’t just take one shot and hope for the best. The chances of getting a good photo with your first shot are very slim. You should take shots from various angles and distances.
8. USE PANORAMA MODE
There are certain situations where the standard camera just won’t do justice to the scene you’re trying to capture. For example, you might want to take a shot of an expansive landscape, a cityscape or a wide building, but can’t fit everything in the frame. This is where you should use panorama mode.
A quick fix for this is to reach out in front of the device and hold my hand parallel to the finer subject that I want to capture. I then double check composition and manually lock focus on my hand before removing it from the frame to take the shot. This almost always results in a
surprisingly crisp photo of the detail I want to isolate.
10. FIND ART IN SIMPLE MOVEMENTS
Believe always being prepared is the best way to capture any moment. Specifically
with the subtle/ simple moments in our
lives, we have to be carefully prepared not
to overstep the boundaries and make that
moment more than it is. Also, we have to make sure to not be too slow on the shutter to miss it in its purest form. It just takes practice–lots and lots of practice. That’s how we get better at anything. We just do it more.
