Fix your lighting

Best images are shot in good lighting conditions. Make sure you’re not against the light source. The source of light falling on your subject should mostly be from your direction or sideways. Make sure there are no shadows in your frame, move the source of lighting around if there is any. Natural light coming from a window is the best light to shoot images in.  

Frame

Once you’ve decided on your main subject it’s time to adjust it in the frame. Keep your framing at eye-level and use the foreground and background to create depth.  

Exposure

When using the camera, there is usually a slider which appears on your point of focus. Use that slider to maintain the perfect brightness levels. Next time you know what to do when your photos are either too bright or dark. 

Rule of thirds

The composition is what sets apart an average photo from an amazing one.  The “rule” states that you should position the most important elements off-centre – rather than in the middle of the frame. The rule of thirds is one of the most powerful techniques, to help you position different elements in the photo.  It really can make or break your images. You can use the grid option available to shoot your images by the rule of thirds.  

Fix the focus

Set the focus on the subject to make your image look sharp. To ensure your subject is always in sharp focus, you’ll need to set the focus point manually. Simply compose your shot, then tap on the screen where you want to set focus. The area that you set focus on will appear crisp and sharp. 

Use portrait to create blurred backgrounds

Almost all phones have this mode on their phones now. Portrait mode uses depth-effect software to keep your foreground subject sharp while blurring the background.  

Use leading lines

Leading lines are lines that lead from the foreground to the background of the scene. A leading line could be a path, a road, a river, or a railway line. It could be a fence, a wall, a bridge, or a row of trees. The line should either lead into the distance or towards your main subject. This is such a simple composition technique. But it will have a huge impact on your mobile photography. 

Your images are sure to look good if you follow these steps! Happy World Photography Day!
