Most of us underestimate the capability of our smartphone camera but believe me whether you have an iPhone or entry-level android just by tweaking the settings of your smartphone camera you can have candid photos of yours. Here are the following 10 simple photographic tips that can lead you to be a pro.
1. Clean your phone camera lens
For the whole day, your phone camera bears your sweat, makeup, oil, and dust. The lens is the most precious part of your camera and if you want to have sharp and crispy photos first of all clean the lens of your phone camera. Many renowned mobile companies are facilitating their customers by providing them wipes plus microfiber cloth are available to clean the lens. Fold the cloth in a triangle and clean the lens thoroughly. You will be surprised that a simple tip can get rid of blurry and vague pictures.
2. Don’t ignore window light
We all are certain that without a good light picture will be blur and gritty. Sunlight is among the key factors for shaping a good image. A good photographer manipulates the sunlight in a better way to give a natural and romantic sensation to the picture. So to give mood, tone, and atmosphere to your picture use sunlight in an organized way.
3. Stay focused
Photography stands on the pillar of “Focus”. Focus is the result of the lens aperture and sunlight combination. In other words, the more the picture is bright, the more it will be focused. Now it will rely on your artistic mind which area of the object or individual you want to keep focused and which area blur. Focus happens either automatically or manually. For manual focus open the camera app, in the area where you want to sharpen the view simply tap on the screen.
4. Gridlines are also handy:
The rule of thirds or using grid lines can give you more engaging and balanced pictures. In this rule, the picture is broken down into 3 both vertically and horizontally. The plot behind the rule of thirds is that it helps to give your pictures a natural look by allowing you to use extra space around your subject.
5. Be steady
Slippery or shaking hands can disrupt the focus of your picture. No one likes blurred shaky or croaky photos. Don’t rush in taking a picture, you will see a clear cut difference when you will take your time, keep your hands or things stable. You can also use two hands for better stability. You can also take the support of any wall or table for achieving better results.
6. Have fun with reflection

Your glass windows can also be a partner to get outstanding results. Now I have given you a free ride. It’s up to you how you are going to utilize this opportunity.
