Wait an extra second

Smartphone cameras are now equipped with some of the highest quality accessories on the market. These advanced cameras on can take clear and sharp pictures almost instantly. Waiting an extra second to line up the shot perfectly can create a better outcome.

Take advantage of composition

Stand closer to scene

The problem with smartphone cameras is they are still small and are not equipped with the best zoom. That means focusing in on a scene will cause blurriness and excess noise. To capture a better image you will have to move the camera closer to the scene.

Do not use flash

The light that results from the flash of a camera is quite powerful. It can create excess shadows and highlights that disrupt the overall meaning of the scene. Unwanted glare is always troublesome according to Figueroa.

Compare different applications
