Smartphone cameras have come a long way in the last few years, but photography is still not their strong suit. That’s why it’s so important to learn how to use your smartphone camera effectively.
Here are a few tips:
Use HDR Mode
HDR stands for high dynamic range, and it’s an important feature that many smartphones have built-in. With HDR mode on, your camera takes multiple photos with different exposures and then combines them into one picture with increased contrast. This makes images appear more detailed and realistic.
Use Burst Mode
Burst mode allows you to take multiple photos in quick succession by simply holding down the shutter button on your phone. This is useful if you’re trying to capture a moment that happens quickly or if you need to get several shots of something before it changes position.
The downside is that burst mode uses up more battery power than normal shooting modes because it’s constantly processing data from the camera sensor.
Use Portrait Mode
Portrait mode allows you to automatically blur out backgrounds in photos so that they don’t distract from the subject being photographed.
Use the flash sparingly
If you’re in a dimly lit room or outside at night, turn off the flash. The camera will automatically adjust for low-light situations. If you need more light, try moving to a brighter area or raising your ISO.
