Tips to Help You Take Great iPhone Photos

Taking pictures is one of the most active move people love to do with their iPhone or refurbished iPhone. When you travel around or you were just caught with a beautiful scenery and you would definitely want to share with you friend, an iPhone is the powerful tool for you to take high resolution pictures. But it is not that easy for you to make high quality photos. So there are some tips to help your photography looks more professional.

Keep your phone stable

The first thing you need to do is holding your new or refurbished iPhone stable. If you cannot do it consciously then you can have tool like tripod to help you, you can hold the iPhone with your left hand and then release the shutter with your right thumb. You should make sure the camera shutter is only released when you take your thumb off of the camera button. Keep this position and try not to move your phone until the photo appears in your photo stream, then you let go of the button and take the picture.

Choose a focal point

One of the best ways to make a scenery looks more interesting or vivid is to add a focal point. You could choose a tree in the distance, a landmark, or even a person. Choosing something that will capture the attention and keeping people interested is the key to make your picture more attracting, Beautiful landscapes sometimes don’t present successfully in photography because the picture doesn’t capture the depth and scale of the landscape. Try focusing on an object in the foreground like a rock or tree. The depth in your photo will make it more engaging and interesting to look at. It’s always good to try to include a person or object in your scene to give a sense of scale. Because the focal point could add an element of story or kind of mystery. Too many elements in one photo can be overwhelming to the viewer. Stick with a minimal background, focusing on one part of the landscape. If your photo seems too busy, try changing your position to capture the same subject from a different angle. The most intriguing photographs are shot from unexpected angles, so experiment with positioning the camera above or below your subject until you find a unique shot.

Check your lighting

You should know that during sunrise and sunset, colors will be warm and golden. Plus, the position of the sun during this time will creates shadows that will also be added to your photo. But it doesn’t always have to be sunny to capture that postcard perfect photo. Cloudy or rainy weather can create a more dramatic background for your photo. Shooting in bad storms can always generate interesting results, you can choose to shoot when light is bright overcast, open shadow, or even a bit of fog. For technical reasons, the small sensor in the iPhone or a refurbished iPhone will handle this light best. The sun will light up your entire subject in a flattering way if you shoot with the sun behind you. However, if your focal point is a person, avoid direct sunlight on your subject. Direct sunlight can cause unattractive shadows, as well as squinting.

Download a photo app

There is an app called Pro HDR X which is specifically designed for taking landscape photos on your iPhone or unlocked refurbished iphone 6. It combines multiple different exposures of the same image into one perfectly exposed photo or you can the specific exposure by hand in manual mode, but there’s only one catch. So the picture taken in this App will take more time than the regular camera App so you would want to use a tripod to help to keep the iPhone perfectly stable.
