Today is our awesome monthly feature, Photo 101, which is all about photography! It has been a big hit with you gorgeous ladies, and I am so happy to be answering your photo-related questions again and sharing a few tips along the way!! Each month, we will talk about various topics, such as: being a mom with a camera, where to print you images, photo storage, and much more!
This month is all about taking pictures with your iPhone! So, here are my top 5 favorite pro tips for getting better or even GREAT pictures with your iPhone!
Tip 1: Position your subjects in Open Shade
Lighting is everything when photographing, and open shade is always best if you want a high quality image! 🙂 If you have noticed, I do this with my kids in a lot of my Instagram pictures! 🙂
Tip 2: Clean the lens of your iPhone camera before you take the picture
So, I know this sounds simple, but I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked to take pictures of someone with their phone and their lens is so dirty! This affects the crisp looking nature of the image, so remember to clean your lens. 🙂 This is so simple, but it can make a huge difference in how your images look!!
Tip 3: Open the Blinds or Shutters to let more light in an Indoor Space
Your camera operates best when it has light, so open up the windows for a better quality photo. Also, move closer to the window for a stronger source of light. 🙂
Tip 4: Face your subject toward the source of light, so the picture isn’t too dark
Speaking of light, face your subjects toward the light! If your light source is coming from behind the source, your image will look too dark. 🙂
Tip 5: Use the Adjustment Settings on your phone to fine tune any Errors
On most iPhones, there is an adjustment button when you pull up a photo in your camera roll. You can adjust the Brightness, Contrast, and Saturation using this. So, if your photo needs a little help, you can play with it here!
