6 Tips For Taking iPhone Photos

Better iPhone photos are just a few shots and a little practice away. Check out these tips.

1. Use the Apple white Ear-pods as your camera shutter release

The Apple Ear-pods (they come pre-packed with all new iPhones) actually have much more functionality than most people realize. You might be surprised to discover that the Ear-pods’ center button can be used for taking photos. Just open your camera app, and press the middle button one time to instantly snap a photo. This trick can also be used for starting and stopping video recordings.

2. Lock The Focus and Exposure Settings

Even iPhone veterans who has shot thousands of photos over the years often don’t know that the iPhone camera lets users lock both the focus and exposure settings. To use the feature, open your camera app and then press and hold onto the screen until the AE/AF Lock banner is displayed on the top. You can then adjust the exposure on your host by sliding your finger up and down.

3. Use a grid overlay

There is a way to use the Rule of thirds with your iPhone photography. All you need to do is apply a grid overlay onto your camera display. To enable a grid overlay, just go to Settings > Photos and Camera and then move the Grid toggle to the on position.

The camera will then display a very handy 3 x 3 grid for you to use so that you can apply the Rule of thirds to your photos.

4. View large thumbnail prevails whenever you are in the “Years” view

It is not very widely known but this is a lot of fun. If you navigate over to the “Years” view while you are looking through your photos, you will be able to do much more than just look at a mosaic of all of the photos that you have taken. If you press on the display and hold it, a dynamic and enlarged thumbnail preview will be displayed that previews all of your individual photos as you moving your finger across your phone screen. This can help create more likes and get more followers on Instagram.

5. To take photos of the ground, turn your iPhone upside down

In order to get the lowest possible angle when trying to shoot something that is on the ground, just turn your phone upside down. Make note of the different when your iPhone is help right side up versus holding it upside down.

6. Use the B&W and granular color controls

There are some great third-party photography editing apps out there. However, there are excellent photo editing tools built directly into your iPhone. To achieve more granular control over black and white, color and lighting effects, use the Photos app to open a photo up and then in the upper right choose the “Edit” option.
These tips will help ensure you create better images that people will love to look at on Instagram and also in general too. We hope this article helped.
