Photography May 28, 2019
iPhone & nowadays, Android also comes with wonderful cameras built. It’s now very much easy to share a picture with our phones, you can also print those pictures without destroying resolution. There are few apps in the market which can help you in giving a professional look to your Pictures.
Gone back those days when you used to visit a shop & ask them to make it a good picture & give a print file. It’s 2019, now every kid or an uncle can do the edit without going to any shop.
But, There are a few steps that you can take help from…
- Camera settings and Options
- Composition Guidelines
- Editing Software Apps
Nowadays, everyone has an interest in clicking general pictures or for any assignments but few choose to click with a Mobile Phone whereas few choose DSLR ( a big cameraaaa:P ). Believe it or not, but “It’s not the camera, It’s the Photographer who invests their time in clicking good pictures not just with a DSLR but with mobile too. iPhones, Google Pixels, Red Mi can make some amazing Images, the user just needs to know how to do it.
Camera Settings and Options
iPhone & other phone cameras have a lot of options inbuilt. They have some inbuilt Basic adjustments and Filters also. It is always wise to make some major settings before taking a picture with a Mobile.
The most & important feature in mobile photography is focusing. Everyone uses it. In iPhones, you can easily lock exposure by just pressing & holding a screen for like 2 to 3seconds & It will show “AE/ AF Lock”, you can then increase or decrease the Brightness if you want.
For more control, you can go to AppStore and search “iPhone camera apps”. Many third-party camera apps provide controls for shutter speed and aperture.
A very basic rule is to follow rules and guidelines to improve your Mobile Photography.
One important rule is
Place your subject on one of those horizontal or vertical lines. Experiment with different perspectives and utilize intersection, horizontal and vertical lines and the boxes. You will get good result if you will follow all the rules positively.
Another iPhone photography tip is to switch out of portrait mode from time to time. Almost every time people use an iPhone or another smartphone to take a picture, they are using the phone in portrait mode. Some scenes will be greatly benefited by turning the phone over to landscape mode. This simple camera trick can actually greatly improve your pictures and overall iPhone photography style.
Editing Software Apps
There are few Editing Apps for Mobile Phone that you can download & edit directly from your Phone. Just like Snapseed, Lightroom and VSCO.
Snapseed is a Google App available on both the platforms Android and Apple Ios. This app provides a Photographer with one-click actions for adjusting white-balance, filters, removing red-eye, crop, fixing weird looking lines. It also supports HDR Photography effects. This app also has a masking brush, healing adjustment features etc.
Adobe Lightroom is a app for ios & android mobile phones & also works on Mac & Windows software. This works great for Professional photography & casual as well. Lightroom is a free app and can do anything a casual or professional photographer wants to do. This app can do white balance, tone enhancements, lens distortion, and you can also add watermark to an Image from this Lightroom app.
Mobile Photography is not only about new & cool mobile phones. Photography also depends on Lighting. If you know how to take a photo but don’t know what to do or how to stop the unwanted light coming from the window then your picture will not get a good result.
Photography is more than just a camera app. It’s an art basically. Professional photographers always keep on learning how to manipulate or can control the light because everyday or in your every room light changes. Natural light never stays the same.
I used to wonder how photographers make a good photo by just clicking from mobile & that too without shadow but then I did a research on it & got to know that they use Ring Light. Ring Light is basically a circle of light which completes or reaches directly to the subject without creating any shadow.
Nowadays, People keeps the competition on Best Mobile Photography because they know no one can stay away from their phones & mobile can give great results in term of Photography. Photography opportunity exists everywhere. Take advantage of this, search it online about events, take part in it & can win cash prizes or any trophy or anything.
Let your creative mind do the ROLE.
