What up everybody? So I’m back today
with some tips on mobile photography I have gotten a lot of requests for this
video and I’m finally been able to film it. So today I’m gonna give you five tips
to up your mobile photography game, so let’s get it let’s go! So the very first tip is work your angles. I’m not talking about it from a subject
perspective I’m talking about it from a camera perspective so for example if
your subject is short like I am, I always advise my photographer to go a little
bit lower so that I appear taller than I am.
Yes I’m a liar. If you are into landscapes especially ones that have been
taken over and over again by lots of people I encourage you to find an angle
that is different and unique which will make your picture more interesting to
look at than if you were to take something straight on and if you’re not
feeling inspired sometimes just simply flipping your
phone or moving it around the subject of choice will give you some ideas on how
you can frame your photo – which leads me on to my second tip: the rule of thirds.
All that means is you’re sectioning off your image into three different sections
vertically and horizontally so you have nine different sections to work with.
Personally I always have a preference for filling up 2/3 of the composition
but that’s not to say that’s like the right way so for example if you’re
taking a landscape photo you’ll want to line up the horizon with one of the
lines. It can also help you center someone within the middle if that’s the
focus. You don’t have to follow it exactly to a tee per se, but especially
if you’re a beginner photographer it’ll help you frame your photo a lot better.
My third tip is to get to know your phone. So take it out for dinner
do a little schmoozing, make your phone your best friend and get to know all of
your phone’s traits. For example I’m using a Google Pixel 3 XL and there’s a
lot of features within the camera itself. There’s portrait mode, panorama, you can also do Night Sight. Knowing all those different features will help you up your
photography game. So if I’m taking a picture at night or where there’s
minimal lighting, I always opt for Night Sight because I know that’s going to
maximize the quality of the output of my photo. I do
a deeper dive into Night Sight in one of my other videos so I’ll link to that
below if you’re interested. Phones nowadays are equal if not better to some
DSLR cameras you can make your picture have a bokeh effect using portrait mode
it will focus on the subject of the photo and ill blur out everything else
cloning the effect that you would have with a portrait lens on a DSLR camera. So
the better you get to know your camera the better your photography game will be.
Now on to my fourth tip some people think that location makes a huge
difference in a photo and it absolutely does but it shouldn’t make or break your
photo either. You can take a picture anywhere – in front of a dumpster, by a
construction site, it doesn’t matter how ugly it is you can still make it look
good if you have good lighting, frame it right and of course edits on top of it.
Now that brings me to my last tip lighting. Lighting is crucial to any
photo. So this is the difference between a well-lit photo and a poorly lit photo
you’ll notice that if you take a picture in bad lighting the quality’s off, it’s
more grainy, there’s a lot more noise in the photo and it’s gonna be really hard
to edit it unless you’re using a feature such as a Night Sight which is going to
help bring up the quality of the photo in areas with poor lighting. Of course
good lighting will make anything look good anywhere whether that’s a picture, a
video or in person. So if you don’t have a good camera, you don’t know how to edit
your photo and you have no photography skills whatsoever if you have good
lighting you’re halfway there. So yeah those are my five tips on how you can up
your mobile photography game if you have any other tips to share with me or with
