The Art of Mobile Photography

The best camera you’ve got is the one on you right!? With so many advances in technology in our phones and the development of new apps – achieving the perfect mobile photo isn’t impossible.

FIND THE LIGHT
Natural light is the best light it’s free and mostly always available. Take photos in the early mornings, evenings before sunset, or find nice shaded areas with even light that won’t give you harsh shadows. (unless that’s what you’re going for of course!)

CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE
Look for different viewpoints and angles to add interest. Don’t be afraid to get low or climb something to get higher! Find a perspective that is unique.

GET CLOSE
Don’t be afraid to get in close. Just like changing your perspective getting closer can provide a more interesting shot.

NO FLASH
The technology for on-camera flash is getting better but I would say more times than none on-camera flash is a no go. It’s usually too bright, creates some awful looking shadows and well just doesn’t look good. So how do you take photos in the dark? You don’t! Well, halfway true – some camera phones work okay in low lighting you can alternatively find a different light source or take a snapshot in your memory.

EDIT DON’T FILTER
Make your images stand out – applying filters doesn’t work for every photo. Every photo has a different lighting, subject and story use apps that provide full-on editing capability where you can adjust things like brightness, contrast, temperature etc. I like using Snapseed.

COMPOSITION
Composition is king. Don’t forget about the rule of thirds, use positive and negative space, find converging lines and don’t forget to look at what is behind your subject.
