Taking photos in every occasion is an activity many people fancy and with the advent of smartphones, it has become one of the best things to do whenever you travel across the world. Before sharing your photos, you want them to look clear and clean, so it can take someone a lot of time to take a perfect shot.
This is not necessarily what should be the case because all you need is to learn the basics of photography that would make it easier for you to use your smartphone to take shots that will put smiles on many people. There are vital skills that photographers who use their phones lack and these are the details Adrián José Velasquez Figueroa is sharing to enlighten everyone about the benefits of using their smartphones to take photos.
The principles of composition
While taking photos, you may choose to just pick whatever comes on your screen. However, with the right skills you can influence the composition of the photo to include only those elements you would want to appear in the end product. This property helps you to create a balance whenever you are taking your photos to avoid getting an image that includes irrelevant information according to Figueroa. One of the rules everyone should adhere to is the inclusion of at least two thirds of the main object in the photo.
Adjust the flash
The flash feature is vital but may not be necessary during all occasions. Therefore, you need to adjust it to fit in your demands and serve the purpose you want. First, you need to understand about lighting and the times when you should not use the flash. Photos taken during the day don’t need a flash effect because it may end up creating unnecessary glare.
Consider the distance between camera and object
Smartphones come with many features to use with the camera. One of these features is the zoom that allows you to bring the object nearer. Instead of zooming, you can move closer to the object to avoid the blurring effect that comes with zooming.
