1 – Hold the phone as you would your SLR
Yes I know. It sounds strange but since it’s a phone it is smaller and lighter so we just hold it in one hand but you need BOTH HANDS and with your right you trigger the shutter.
2 – Dont zoom in with the camera, ZOOM in with your FOOT…..
It’s getting stranger isn’t it? If you want a close up of a subject, get closer, walk towards it. It’s as simple as that. Even with a tiny ZOOM, your picture will loose quality unless what you are after is GRAINY and PIXELATED picture
3 – Take multiple copies
Just like an SLR, the iPhone allows you to take numerous copies of the same subject. Never delete pictures while you think are not good enough until you’ve had a chance to have a look at them on computer.
4 – Light
Like with any camera light is important so are with phones. Lower the light the more chance of obtaining a grainy and bad quality picture. Unless you are taking a picture of the sun and sea, keep the light behind you and your subject we lit.
5 – Check the resolution and picture settings on your phone and turn them up.
