Mobile Phones are Just another essential thing for livelihood of today’s Generation. Oh Sorry, Not Mobiles “Multimedia Mobiles” are. Yes because there are very few people who own Simple Mobiles and there is not been much Price difference between Simple and Multimedia Phones. Now Everybody uses their Mobile Cameras to take Pictures for their Facebook Profile Pictures or WhatsApp DP or any other Hobby Purposes. But everyone is not that Good at Mobile Phone Photography. Admit it, 7 out of 10 Photos taken are always disappointing. Why? Everyone Blames Camera Quality. Well You Should not. Because one can easily take awesome Photos with Mobiles if you Follow following Tips for Mobile Phone Photography.
1) Use Sunlight to Get Proper Focus for Photos
Use Sunlight to Get Fair Photos without using any Focus instrument like Professional photographers. Focus is the key to get better Photos hence it is obvious that you can use this for Mobile Phone Photography. Face should be facing sun so you can get maximum exposure. But do not use “Too Bright Focus” else the eyes will almost get shut and too Bright photo may loose it’s beauty. Also you can use Sunlight in the evening to get awesome shadow Photos. But instead of facing sun the Person should show its back to the Sun which will create a Mild shadow in the Background and Yellowish or Reddish Background will add very attractive background. Well you cannot use Moonlight for Mobile Phone Photography in the Night so try to use Mild Lights in the Dark Background which will also give a Nice effect for Photos.
2) Find Unique Pose Ideas on the Internet
Well this section mostly belongs to our Dear Ladies, as Guys don’t really Poses, or should I say “We do not really Care About Poses.” Still you want to find ideas for Good Poses which you would like to see your Model or yourself in, then you can Google for it. You will find Hundreds of Images on Google and Some articles suggesting very Good poses.
3) Avoid Zooming
You Might have noticed that when you capture Photos with your Mobile, Quality of Photo decrease gradually. The Pixels seems to be torn apart in the Photo, so my strict advice is that you should make yourself moving rather than Zooming for Mobile Phone Photography. If you wish you can Crop the Image later using any third party Software for Photo editing.
4) Try to Take Steady Clicks
Avoid Taking Photos while you are in motion, i.e. while travelling in bus or train. Because at those times you are unable to stay steady and Taking shots during motion kinda creates blur images. Which will everyone try to avoid to keep in its collection. Also ask your model to stay steady, some people have very bad habit of Laughing, or Moving hands while one is taking Photos.
5) Clean the Lens of the Camera
Cleaning the Lens of the Camera is one of the Most ignored things for Mobile Phone Photography. You might have observed that when you use Mobile Phones at Public Place, There is lot of dust Particles saturated at the Lens of the Camera. Sometimes when you are at cold place a bit of Moisture is present at the Lens of the Camera Lens of Mobile. These things affect the quality of Photos as some Pictures comes blurred while some with unknown spots. Just clean them with a Clean piece of cloth and start Clicking.
6) Use Rule of Thirds for Mobile Phone Photography
Well let me tell you first. Can you see 9 boxes in the Picture given, the Image is divided into 9 equal parts which helps to click all possible elements to be taken in the Desired image. It helps to not to miss any element and keep them as proper distance. Well these boxes remain on the Camera Application while taking photo and is not displayed on the real Image. It is not necessary that every mobile should have this feature for their Mobile Phone camera the ones which have should use for their Mobile Phone Photography.
7) Use Landscape Mode for Non Human Photos
Using Landscape mode for taking pictures for Scenarios is the best way to capture them. Probably because landscape mode covers most of the area as compared to the portrait. One should always avoid to take Portrait photos for scenarios as they will always look dull as compared to the Landscape modes. For Human Photos you can switch for both according to the number of people you are taking photos for. If you want a Good background for a Group Photo then obviously you should go for Landscape Mode but if the Photo is to be taken for one or two people then you should choose Portrait mode as it gives attention to the People in the Photograph.
8) Use MACRO mode
The MACRO mode basically adds more life to the Object in the Front rather than to the Background. The background is blurred and the Object in the Front is More Smoothness which makes it to give more attention to the object rather than the background. Very few Mobiles are Compatible with MACRO mode. But the ones which have can do great for their mobile Phone Photography.
9) Edit Using Easy Photo Editing Softwares
Obviously when you are taking Photos, you will not be able to edit color scheme and composition for the Photos. Also there are lots of operations to perform to get a Perfect Photo. So you can try Many Online Photo Editing Websites or FREE softwares like Picasa which can make your Photo more beautiful and Good Looking than before. These softwares can Modify the Color Composition,Resolution, Image Size etc. very easily. You can also add various effects Like Custom Frames,60′s effect, Photo Border or Glowing the Photo more with the options given in the Software. This is the Most Important and Most followed step for those who does Mobile Phone Photography.
