How To Take a Much Better Picture with Your Smartphone




Taking pictures with a smartphone is not difficult, but there are some rules to be applied if you want to take a clean shot or take a photo like a pro. 
Below are some simple ideas that users of any level can try out with their device. Today I will be showing you how to improve your smartphone photography skills today with these top tips.


1. Clean your lens
The first place to start when trying to take a good picture is to clean your smartphone's camera lens. These frequently become dirty and the results will be a blurry image. Every time you go to take a picture, give the lens a quick wipe on your T-shirt first to sweep away any grime.


2. Use touch-to-capture or volume shutter for selfies
When shooting a classic selfie, it's all-too-easy to drop your phone when attempting to press the capture button. By enabling touch-to-capture, it's hard to miss the trigger: it becomes the whole screen.

Alternatively, depending on which is your preferred hand, it may be easier to reach the volume controls. This option isn't available on every device, but if it's on your handset you should find it in the settings menu under volume control function, or use volume as control. 
Camera settings differ from device to device, but they should all include tap to take pictures or volume control options.

3. Never miss a shot with quick-launch
Many Android smartphones have a shortcut to launch the camera, rather than entering the dedicated app. The native Android solution to this is a camera icon located at the bottom of the lockscreen which you can swipe but on some devices all you need to do is double-tap the power/lock button.

On later Samsung phones, a double-tap on the home button will do the trick.

These shortcuts are there to help you access the camera as quickly as possible. Though they won't guarantee your pictures will be better, they could help you capture a shot you would normally miss.

4. Shoot in landscape
We have become accustomed to a 16:9 media format and as a consequence, pictures shot in portrait just tend to look awkward now. Unless there is an important reason that you would need a taller shot (like, say, shooting a picture of the Fernsehturm from a close distance), pictures are almost always better in landscape.

For now that's all I can offer, but if you have any intentions of taking up photography as a career, I'd advice you to go to a school of photography, or download a more comprehensive ebook from Google pages.
