Mobile photography can be just as good or even better, than that of images taken on a camera. All you've got to do is use your eye to capture something truly amazing!
Below I have listed a few tips and tricks of the trade, to help you reach perfection in your quest to being a photography master.
Look After Your Lens
As you are aware, your phone is a very personal item and spends most of its time being carried about from place to place. Because of this constant exposure to the elements, your lens is bound to get fogged up and/or dirty. If your images are turning out a little blurred or you see random speckles in your images, you may just need to clean your lens.
A Steady Hand
To help your focus and image quality, one of the simplest things to overcome this is to try your best to keep a steady hand. If this is a problem for you, it might be worth buying a cheap phone tripod to help you capture the best quality images possible with your phone.
Don't Use Zoom
The zoom feature, especially on smartphones, only degrades the image quality! It is far better to simply crop the image when it comes to editing, or try to get closer to your subject matter in person than it is to risk using the zoom on your phone.
Zooming in on a subject on your phone only increases grain and makes your photos blurred.
Don't Over Edit!
When it comes to the editing process, it can be tempting to overcompensate and edit your images too much. Keep it simple and keep as many elements as you can from the original image. All you've really got to do is make the subject matter pop and your good to go.
Take Multiple Shots
The best advice I can give you is not to stop at one photo of a certain subject matter because you won't know if you'll ever happen upon that particular scenario again! The image you just took may end up being out of focus and you'll have to discard it. Take a few images of the same subject so that you have a variety of shots to choose from, which will almost guarantee you that at least one of them will be worthy enough to be shared with the world!
Just have fun with it! Try out different angles, compositions, subjects etc whatever works best for you and your phone. Think creatively and let your mind flow full of ideas and inspiration from the world around you!
