The smartphone they have now become a daily tool for taking photos in any situation, and the upcoming Christmas holidays will not be outdone. So if you are ready to immortalize toasts, gifts, family pictures and more, you should definitely read these 5 tips that we propose today for take better pictures with your Android device. Of course you will not take cover photos, but they will help you improve the overall quality of your shots, so leave aside speeches on which smartphone has the best camera, take your device and follow these instructions.
The rule of thirds
There grid that appears during the shots on your Android devices is not trivially used to center an image, but there is the rule of thirds that will help you get better images. The horizon of your image (if it exists) must be one third from the bottom (or down from the top) of your image, and the focal point must be one third away from the left or right edge. If your camera application has no lines for the rule of thirds, do not worry. Just make sure that any horizon, where the sky meets the earth, or where a wall meets the floor, or any straight line that is about to attract the visible eye, is about a third of the height of the screen from above or below, if visible to all. Put the focal point of about a third from the edge equally easy to obtain, but it is necessary to consider the suggestion to see the scene where it "moves".
Depth and balance
The more the shots are natural and the better your photos will be, use the vertical and horizontal lines in order to "enclose" the subject. The depth then important, so much. The best photos have a scenario in the background or in the foreground. Often, these objects are far enough away from what you are focusing on so much that they appear blurry. This effect can be wonderful, even with the small lens and sensor of ours Android device. If you are taking a photo against a wall, for example, try moving to a different angle to insert something else into the scene.
Avoid using digital zooms, try where possible to get closer to the subject and possibly to crop the photo at a later time, you need to move to get the right shot. In the studio portrait, you can also stand still in front of the camera. The photographer has full manual control over every aspect of the photo, when you are out with the different speech with friends, move around and look for the correct shooting position.
Elbows are very important
Hold the phone firmly in your hands and press your elbows against your stomach. It keeps the camera steady, and will help you have less blurry photos. OIS in newer Android cameras helps here, but nothing works as well as not moving the camera while shooting.
The best photos never come only from the camera, exposure, color correction and white balance are difficult to achieve with smartphone cameras. It is also difficult to frame a photo correctly when things and people or things move. The good news that most of this can be solved quite easily with a image editor. The key is to take lots of photos and then choose the best one to edit. Very often you already have applications that allow you to edit images on your device, which allow you to crop, resize, adjust the "heat" and "coolness" of your image. If you don't have it or don't like it, open the Play Store and you will find dozens of similar applications, paid or not.
