Smartphone Photography Tips: How to Take Better Pictures with Your Phone
If you can, try to get physically closer to your subject instead of zooming in. When you zoom in, the quality of the photo decreases significantly and the photo can turn out grainy.
Most of the time, I just take a photo on my phone using the Auto setting. However, every now and then, I’ll switch it over to manual or “pro” mode. In this setting, I’m able to take full control of my exposure and can manually set the shutter speed, the ISO, the focus, etc. This is especially helpful in low light situations. For example, if I’m in a dark restaurant, my camera will sense that there’s not enough light and it’ll increase the ISO way too much, causing my photo to look grainy. If I switch it over to manual mode, I can choose my settings and achieve a much better picture.
