Taking Better Photos With Your Phone


Important Tips & Tricks

Focus on the rule of thirds:

The rule of thirds 2

The theory is that if you place points of interest in the intersections or along the lines that your photo becomes more balanced and will enable a viewer of the image to interact with it more naturally.


Use angles: Take 10 extra seconds before you shoot to think about the best perspective for your subject. Move around a little and find an angle that looks more interesting that straight-on.

Shoot through: Shoot your subject through a group of people, some foliage, or dangle something in front of the lens. Give the photo a little more depth and complexity.

Think opposite: If everybody is taking photos from the same spot at the same angle, try something different. Shoot the subject from the other side, from up close, upside down, at a weird angle, etc.

Find the light: Lighting is super important, so take some extra time to find the best light for your shot. Don’t settle. If the light isn’t good enough, consider coming back at a time when it is, or try to add your own. And never forget about golden hour.
