Keep the lens clean.
Get as close as possible. Often
when you zoom, your picture
quality decreases.
Look at the entire frame. Can
you reposition the subject to
remove unwanted clutter?
Make sure you set your
image quality or resolution at
its maximum setting. Check
your aspect ratio (square or
rectangular). It is often hard to
get a 4x6 out of a square photo.
Good light makes great
pictures. Most camera phones
have limited or no flash. In low
light your picture quality is often
poor.
Use available light when
possible but don't be afraid
to force or choose flash. Take
advantage of natural lighting
for example from a window.
Get your subject as close to the
window as possible. Cut on the
flash to fill in shadows when
needed even when you are
outside.
Remain still. Do your best to
keep your camera phone still
when photographing.
Turn on the grid lines. The
grid lines allow you to easily
compose your pictures using
the rule of thirds. The rule
of thirds encourages you to
position the subject where the
grid lines intersect. The grid
lines also make it easier to
keep the horizon straight.
Anticipate the delay. Most
camera phones have a delay
when taking the photo. Make
sure you do not move before
the photo is taken. Try the rapid
fire or burst mode if needed.
Consider the HDR mode (high
dynamic range). Using the HDR
mode allows you to balance the
light and shadows. Often this
works well for landscape and
sunsets. Remember most HDR
modes take multiple photos at
one time and create the best
photo possible by combining
these images. So you must
remain still while the camera
takes the multiple photos.
This mode may not be ideal
for moving objects. Most HDR
modes to do not allow for flash.
Some newer phones have
portrait modes. Just remember
portrait modes blur the
Phone Photo Tips
background so do not use it on
group photos.
Do not get arrested. Remember
you cannot legally take photos
in courthouses, concerts,
public transportation especially
airplanes, theatres, etc. Be
courteous. Ask before you
post photos of friends and
their families. Remember most
phones attach GPS coordinates
and time stamp automatically
to your photo. Do you want to
share your location coordinates
on Instagram or Facebook?
Create a "To Print" folder for
easy printing/transfer. For easy
printing McClanahan Camera
uses uploadtokiosk.com to
allow us to move copies of
certain images to our photo
kiosk for easy printing.
Printing your camera phones
pictures. Try to keep the
original uncropped photo so
you will have the freedom to
print different photo sizes.
For instance an 8x10 crops
differently than a 4x6.
Emailing your photo. Attaching
a picture to an email in its
original or actual form will often
lead to a printable image.
AND ALWAYS BACKUP
YOUR PHOTOS REGULARLY.
This generation is taking
more photos than any other
generation but is failing to find
a good way to archive them for
future generations. Learn how
to better archive your photos
