Newer smartphones are capable of taking great photos. Popular Mechanics shares some tips on how to get even better photos with your phone:
- Let the phone handle the technicalities of getting a good image. There’s no need to stabilize your phone or mess with brightness adjustments because the newer phones do it automatically.
- Turn on HDR. High dynamic range captures multiple versions of a single image at different settings and the software puts it all together to create a single exceptional photograph.
- Use the side button to capture the image. Don’t hold the phone with one hand and use your finger to tap the screen and then accidentally drop your phone.
- Use the rule of thirds to frame your photos correctly. Instead of centering your subject in the middle of the grid, place the subject’s eyes around 2/3 of the way up the grid and off to the right.
