Mobile photography has come a long way, where you don’t need a DSLR for capturing great quality images and the phone in your pocket is capable of doing the same. Flagships from Samsung or Apple have some of the best cameras that can give you stunning images.

A prime example of how far mobile photography has come is that now even movies are shot using smartphones. The movie ‘Unsane’, directed by Steven Soderbergh was shot on an iPhone 7 Plus in 4K using an app called FiLMiC Pro.

You can click fairly good pictures using your smartphone, with just a little bit of assistance. Which is why we’re here, to help you take great portrait, landscape and action photos. Be a pro in no time, following these easy tips:

Camera Shake

The tiny movements in your hands and arms that make your images blurry is called ‘Camera Shake’. The end result is images with incorrect focusing which ruins the image. How to reduce camera shake?


– Use a Tripod. It helps sharpen the images taken and provides a stable platform for your smartphone to rest.
– Bring your elbows in and rest them on your stomach/chest. This will act as a manual tripod.

Rule of Thirds

According to Wikipedia, Rule of Thirds is a guideline which states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and those important compositional elements should be placed along these lines. This can be achieved by opening the camera app and toggling Grid Switch on.

HDR Mode

HDR (High dynamic range) is a common feature found on most phones. Turning HDR increases the range of luminance, resulting in better quality photos with more detail and dynamic range.

Natural lighting

Lighting is the most important part of portrait photography or photography in general, be it a smartphone or a professional camera. When the conditions are well lit, the images taken produce great results.

Focus On Subject

Focusing on your subject’s eyes usually creates a very dramatic portrait photograph that captures their personality and their true self.

Editing Applications

Various image editing apps available on both Apple App Store and Google Play Store which are very useful in enhancing your images. The following are our top 5 picks of image editing apps that you can use –
– Snapseed
– Adobe Photoshop Express/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC
– PicsArt Photo Studio
– Prisma
– VSCO

Good photos from a mobile phone are no big deal in 2018, and we are just beginning to scratch the surface of what these devices can do. Mobile cameras are learning how to click better pictures and increasingly becoming smarter because of AI, and this is just the start. The future looks extremely well lit!
