Get closer to the object you want to capture

Zooming reduces the image quality allot so, if there is a particular object you want to capture, get closer to it so that the focus stays on the object and the image is not just filled up with the background.

The rule of thirds

Many smart phones have this mode where you can see that your phone’s screen is virtually divided into nine parts by three vertical and three horizontal lines. These lines are for a purpose. Professional suggest that instead of keeping the subject of the picture in the center of the frame keep your subject of interest on the points where these lines intersect are where you should place points of interest in the frame. You’ll be pleasantly amazed at the difference!

Correct lighting

Photography is all about lighting. The best kind of light for any sort of photography is definitely, day light however, if you are indoors, use sources with strong artificial lights instead of relying on your Camera’s flash. Use a white poster board to reflect light better or perhaps a sunshade to illuminate your subject much better.

Keep your Camera lens clean and Use picture editing tools

Fingerprints or specs of dust on your Camera lens might lead to blurry pictures. So, use a soft cloth to wipe away any grime from your camera’s lens and get crystal clear pictures. Use the in built picture editing options in your cell phone to enhance the colors, brightness saturation or to crop your pictures. Also, you may download some tools and experiment with them to remove red eye, blur out some objects or to apply filters.
