Smartphones have aided us in our ability to take good pictures and capture memories. Taking a photo when you go to an outing will no longer be a problem. With the help of a smartphone, here are a few tips that can help you become a photography pro and better your photo game!

Framing and Composition

Let’s look at some before and after’s:

Picture one:

Picture two:

Picture one and picture two feature the same subject, but as you can see the composition is very different. In the first image, the cat who is set as the subject of the photograph, is not really the true subject since there are other elements in the photo that your eyes are drawn to.

As you can see in the two pictures above, framing and composition is key. It is crucial to be able to set up your photography in a way that it is visibly pleasing to the eye. What matters is how you place or focus on your subject. When you take a picture, you want it to have a meaning and to clearly communicate your meaning. To improve your composition, you can use the rule of thirds, practice symmetry, and frame your images in a way that you think works best.

Framing is slightly off center, that causes your eyes to be drawn upwards as well.

One of the most important parts of photography is your background. A background is important because it can either add or take away from the image. Sometimes having a plain background is best because it will make your focus very clear to the viewer, making their eyes focus on the forefront of the image. A background can take away from your focus if it is too busy.

Editing

One of the most important steps in the process of photography is post production. Editing photos can take you to the next level. In postproduction, you have the ability to add filters to your picture, change the hue, up the vibrancy of the photo, or edit the saturation. There is a world of possibilities that come into play while editing a photo.

Use Write-on Video to Write Down your Stories

The next step to preserving your precious moments and share with others is a video.
