Here are three easy tips for taking beautiful photos.
1. Tap to Focus
You've got your camera open and squared to take a photo, but just before you go to press that capture button, first quickly tap on the area of the screen you'd like to make sure is in focus. When you tap, you should see a small square appear over the area demonstrating just where the camera will focus. For example, tap the screen on a child's face, or on the best part of the artwork. After tapping on this area, simply press the capture button as usual.
Doing this extra little step will ensure the photo is in focus on the most important part!
2. Keep Bright Lighting Behind You
All professional photographers know that light is the most important part about taking a great photo. For best lighting when taking a picture, make sure that any windows, sunlight, or other main light sources are BEHIND you. That way the light is naturally illuminating the picture, while not creating glare against the camera lens.
3. Go Down to Their Level
Find yourself looking down when you're taking a photo of a little one? Instead of snapping from that high-up angle, quickly drop a knee and take the photo from a bit lower down. This will help give the feeling of really being in the moment when looking at the photo.
This tip also has the added benefit of giving you a little extra work out. :)
