Since my phone is always at the ready, I’ve taken to capturing nearly all my photographs with my iPhone’s camera. Though there are obvious limitations in terms of picture quality, the technology is getting progressively better and many of us are using our smartphones to capture life’s precious moments. Here, Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman, the authors of A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book, share three tips to taking a pretty picture with your cell phone.
-Capture as much light as you can. Good light is especially important when using a lower-grade camera. To avoid blurry or grainy photos, ask your subjects to move towards the light source.
-Get close. By filling your frame, finding the perfect angle, and focusing on detail you can get a great shot. Just be careful not to zoom in too close!
