Mobile Photography Tips

Tip #1 Background matters a lot

If you think it does not matter, see the pictures. Most of the people do not have cautiousness of how the improper background affects the subject!   

Like this picture, the puppy face and its body is clear to the subject. But the background distracts it.

See this picture, 

"See this picture,sleeping beauty of puppy very clear to the subject. The background is contrast and you cannot take eyes off the picture"

Tip #2 Try experimenting with angles

Different pictures needed to be taken in different angles. Of course it must be clear to the subject. When you take pictures of people it is of portrait mode and places in a landscape mode. If you take a picture of objects angles are needed.

I want to show the audiences, how the plant reaches the sun so the best method is to take appropriate angle. By seeing this,  people picture in their minds, how did he take this?? what angle he chose??

Tip #3 Get to know about your mobile
This may appear funny. But i have known people who have used their mobile for years but still lack to know the features. Moreover get to know the pros and cons of your mobile. Many do not update the mobile firmware. Updating the phone software is a good thing.

Tip #4 Set your mobile to a highest resolution

Most of the mobile phones are set to the less resolution. Do check the settings for the maximum resolution possible.
