Tips to get a perfect click on your smartphone

  • Tap your phone’s screen once when you click the shot. Tapping the screen will focus on the object which will be helpful for clear and visible pictures.
  • While clicking photographs, make sure that the lights are behind you (the photographer) The object must be in front of the lights. It will give the natural brightness to the subject.
  • Be creative and think about various angles. Every time, it is not compulsory to take photos straight on the middle line. Try different options.
  • For the moving shots, use the ‘burst’ feature to take a bunch of pictures at a time. By this process, you will be able to click many photos at the same time, which will help you in not-to-miss any moments.
  • Avoid zooming. If you want to get closer images, walk closer to the object but don’t zoom. It affects negatively on your picture quality.
  • Imagine different shots. Go funky. Try different props like a pair of sunglasses, fairy lights, thin papers, etc. Try different crazy ideas for some unique clicks.
  • Try various photo generating apps. You may not feel them original, but they will surely help you to click different images. They can edit your pictures instantly with various cool effects.
