Tips For Capturing Beautiful Moments With Mobile Camera

Learn how to use any mobile camera (like, iPhone, Nokia, Samsung, etc.) in your favor to create excellent and print-worthy photographs.


Light your subject well - Indoor lighting: As many lights on subject as possible, avoid placing subject directly in front of light.

Outdoor lighting - Shoot in medium shade, avoid shooting a subject facing direct sunlight.

Obey the rule of thirds - Divide the frame into thirds horizontally and vertically. place the subject at the cross hairs.

Steady hands - A steady hand produces a clear image, especially in low light.
Get close to your subject - Camera phones keep everything in focus and your subject can get lost in the background. Fill the frame with your subject to make it prominent.


Keep your lens clean - Without a lens cap your lens will get dirty in your pocket.

Experiment with white balance and sunlight - Tweaking the white balance and playing with sunlight can greatly adjust the mood of your photos.

Use the highest resolution - Only the highest setting will match the average digital camera.

Don't use digital zoom - Digital zoom causes a pixelated image and offers nothing that can't be done later in editing, and of course you wouldn't like to see fuzzy photos on big screen.


Don't trash photos right away - Don't judge a photo before you view it on a larger computer/laptop screen. Try to convert your pictures to blurry, black and white or in gray color or try some other attractive effects.

Observe camera phone Etiquette - Phone cameras have a reputation for taking unsolicited photographs, don't photograph strangers without their knowledge.

Take loads of shots and experiment - The shots cost nothing (except the charging of your cell battery) and the possibilities are endless.
