It’s more convenient for people to pick up a phone to take a photo rather than using professional camera in our daily life, but if you want to produce some great pictures and gain more LIKEs on social media, here are 5 essential skills you need to know.
Use the rule of central & the rule of third.
A good composition can make photo to be eye-catching. To put subject in the central of the screen can grab people’s attention.
The rule of third is another useful composition skill in photography. Using two horizontal lines and two vertical lines to divide up the image, then position the subject in the points where lines meet or along lines.
Do conversion to black and white
Shoot in colour, do conversion to black and white later. Then you will receive another different meaning.
Hold your phone steadily
To avoid taking blurry photos, sometimes you should use two hands to hold the phone or you can also put it on solid surface to keep it steady. Of course, you could also use a tripod.
Set the focus is most important
It is very important to ensure that you subject is in focus. Using your finger to tap the screen where the subject is in the frame. Sometimes, you can also use some apps to edit the photo if you are not happy with photos, like AfterFocus, can blur the background.
Practice makes perfect
You can’t expect just take one shot and gain the best picture, try to take photos from various angles and distances, and keep practicing.
