Taking Better Photos on your Phone | Brz Winter Newsletter
So many of us don’t want to carry our big cameras everywhere with us. & for everyday photos, your phone can actually do a really good job!!
Some tricks I use for taking photos include:
-Ensuring you have enough light: Phones generally do not work well in low-light situations and the flash often is too harsh and desaturates your photo.
-Tap to focus: I always tap my subject to focus on that point. This will also lower your aperture and create the bokeh effect (or blurs your background).
-If you want your subject to pop: create distance between your subject and the backdrop; after tapping your subject the backdrop will become out of focus & your eye will be drawn to your subject.
-Avoid the zoom: zooming in on things will decrease the quality of your photo
For editing I love:
-Lightroom for your phone: this allows your to edit with ease right on your handheld device
-Instagram filters: but be careful not to “over edit”. I always refer back to my original photo to ensure I have’t gotten too carried away!
Practice makes perfect! The beautiful thing about the digital age is that you can always delete unwanted photos.
