5 Cell Phone Photography Tips ( Part 1 )

You’ve probably got a cell phone with a camera on it. Here are 5 great tips to improve your cell phone photography!

Cell phone photography, or mobile phone photography if you prefer, is quite likely the most common form of photography there is these days. And the reason is obvious – most people carry a cell phone (and consequently a camera) everywhere with them.

1 – Adjust phone settings

The key to any good photo is a good quality starting image. And with cell phone camera image sensors being on the small size, that’s even more important.

So, the first thing you need to do is explore your cell phone’s camera menu and access the resolution setting and the quality setting.

Resolution – set this to the highest available. Resolution is how many of the camera’s pixels you want the phone to capture. If you choose not to use all the pixels available you’re wasting what could be valuable image data.

2 – Learn how to keep the phone still

All the quality and resolution settings in the world won’t help at all, unless you know how to hold your phone steady. Wobble that phone around while you stab the screen and you’ll be lucky if anything comes out in focus. And it’s not as easy as you might think.

There is something of a technique involved and the main thing is to brace your cell phone as best you can while you take the photo. The reason why this is important is that, with cell phone photography, the camera is less sensitive to light than a traditional camera. And that means shutter speeds are lower. And the consequence of that is that it’s far easier to blur photos than with a regular camera.
