Use The Principles of Photography Composition
There are basic guidelines for taking a picture, says Figueroa. First, there is the rule of three. The most important parts of the picture should be about one-third of the beginning of one side of the picture. Trimming can help make the picture better if it has a poor composition, says the article.
Take Closer Pictures
Since smartphones do not have optical zoom, you often get a lot of distortion in the picture, says the article. Instead of having to do a lot of photo editing, Figueroa suggests that you approach what you want to photograph on adrianjosevelasquezfigueroa.com. Getting up close for pictures makes them look good. He says that you can practice taking pictures of small things, and then taking the picture again close-up. There are also zoom lenses available for smartphones, he says.
Turn Off The Flash
Adrián José Velasquez Figueroa says that flash can create unwanted shadows and highlights; so, he recommends that you turn it off. Natural lighting is the best for pictures. It makes the illumination more balanced. If need be, he says, you can make a fader for your flash.
Use Camera Apps
There are several apps that Figueroa recommends for quality photography with your smartphone. He says they have more options, like adjusting zoom and exposure. He uses ProCamera as an app. Even though you will have to pay for a good photo app, Figueroa says it will be worth it.
Understand Your Camera App Options
One of the benefits of using a photo app is that you can adjust the options that best fit what you want to photograph, says Figueroa. Since some applications can be complex, Figueroa suggests that you find an online tutorial or a YouTube video to show you about all of the options. You can also do a little experimenting to find out the best options for your photography.
Use The HDR Moderately
The High Dynamic Range is good to help balance reflections and shadows, says Figueroa. However, it can create pictures that seem out of place if it is overused. He suggests that you keep HDR in automatic mode. The camera app can decide when it is best to be used.
Moderate Use of Filters
There are a lot of photo apps that allow you to use filters. Figueroa says that you should use them wisely. They can be boring if they are used on all of your pictures, he says.
Always Keep Your Lens Clean
Since your phone is usually in your pocket all day long, there is a chance that the lens can get dirty. Figueroa says that you should keep a cleaning cloth with you to clean the lens and the screen. It can make the difference in better photos, he says.
