Following are some interesting tips that can help you click best images via smartphone camera.
Use gridlines for a perfect shot
Using camera gridlines is one of the best and easiest ways to improve your mobile photos that superimposes a series of lines on the smartphones camera screen based on the 'rule of thirds'. According to this, the image needs to be broken down into thirds, horizontally and vertically to get nine parts in total.
Set camera focus
Smartphone cameras these days automatically focus, but not every picture clicked has an obvious subject. For this, users are required to open the camera app, followed by tapping the screen to focus on the subject and sharpen the view.
Make sure you choose a clear location for clicking pictures or try getting to a high rise for that perfect shot. Also, be sure to clean your smartphone camera lens before taking a picture.
Before clicking the picture, make sure you have a tripod handy. This will help in fixing your phone firmly to click that perfect image.
Use HDR mode
For clicking detailed photos, make sure your HDR mode is turned on.
Turn off the Flash
Before clicking, images make sure that the smartphone flash is turned off so that it doesn't ruin your photos.
Use maximum resolution
To get the best possible image, go to settings of the camera app and opt for maximum resolution.
Make sure you turn on the pro-mode of the camera, which will help users in getting better control over exposure, shutter speed and white balance.
Refrain from digital zoom
Try not to use the digital zoom on your smartphone as it happens to deteriorate the image quality. Instead, try using other zoom accessories.
Make sure you edit photos and opt for some options like Adobe Lightroom, Pixlr or PicsArt Studio, for that perfect image.
