Smartphones having better cameras are being introduced to the market. To this end, everyone is able to take good pictures that rival those taken with powerful digital cameras. However, not all have mastered the skill of taking good pictures as can be seen in photos posted on various Instagram and Facebook accounts. Combining good lighting, a good eye for great scenes, and photographic depth knowledge has remained a challenge. Below are tips on how to take good pictures using a Smartphone as elucidated by Adrián José Velasquez Figueroa.
Be patient with your take
Unlike in the early days of camera phones, the current cameras on smartphones have the ability to take high-quality pictures, which are sharp and clear. Taking an extra second to enhance good lighting, angle, and scene helps in improving the quality of the resulting photograph. While taking pictures, avoid unnecessary hurry.
Employ the principles of composition
The principle of Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa states that the important aspects of a photo should begin at a third the distance from one side of the picture. This positioning can be improved later by cropping the important feature to the right position after the picture has been taken.
Move closer to the object
Unlike cameras that have optical zoom, most smartphones have digital zoom. It is advisable to draw closer to the object rather than zooming in. This step will ensure that maximum pixels are used to create the picture resulting in clear and sharp photos.

Do not use the flash
Using the flash comes with many side effects such as strange shadows and highlights, and unwanted glare. This situation affects the picture’s color. Unless the flash is the only way to get lighting, it should always be turned off and other sources of light used.
Use third party camera applications
Although the standard camera app that comes with smartphones is good, using third party applications can drastically improve your pictures. Applications that Adrian uses such as Camera 3360, Camera ZOOM FX, and ProCamera enable one to use different flash options, take bursts, and adjust the zoom and exposure separately.
Learn about photo editing
Photo editing can significantly improve the quality of a picture. However, being a good photo editor requires a lot of practice before learning the art. With good editing skills, one can enhance the photos in such a way that nobody will know that they were edited.
