HOW TO MAKE A GOOD PHOTO WITH A SMARTPHONE?
Many photographers claim that the best camera is the one which we have with ourselves. The most frequently, average Joe does not wear a pocket digital camera, and the more SLR camera. But almost everyone carries a mobile or a smartphone. Today, technology is now so concentrated that even a middle-class smartphone can do a very interesting photo.
What a smartphone to choose?
If you like to snap photos – many and everywhere – it is worth buying a smartphone with a good camera. The most important issue is not the number of megapixels and the matrix, which is an element that captures and converts light. The bigger the matrix, the more light will capture. You should not trust the producers who claim that the amount of megapixels is crucial and “pack” bigger and bigger number of them in sensors which does not improve the quality of images. We should also pay attention to the diaphragm – the smaller it is the more light, which is better – and to image stabilisation.
How to take a picture?
First of all, you need to watch over two things – the composition and the light. If we are not seasoned photographers we have to follow the simple rules – put the main element in the middle of the image (such operation works well for square photos on Instagram) or create a composition according to the classical method of thirds. Then we divide the screen into nine equal rectangles and photographed objects are placed on the points where the lines meet. Optimal lighting is one that focuses on the main element of the composition.
How to edit a photo?
Even if the photo is not perfect, nothing is lost yet. We can tweak it using the options available in a smartphone – sharpening, brightening or darkening the contrast or by applying an appropriate filter. You can also download the application for image editing and get amazing results.
