Please summarize 10 suggestions for taking photos with your phone to make it better. All photos in the article are taken with different phones. Each phone has a different camera tool interface, so there is a share here and it has its own part. I will write notes and present illustrations. I shared it for a day live, making it easier for you to make a song. Exploiting and mastering the functions allowed by the machine. A lot of phones have very good shooting tools, you have paid a lot for them, tap. Don't justify it with "Oh, shoot for fun!" or "Oh, take a phone call, happy!" Hoping to make a contribution to you who like to capture is needing to cultivate more to take pictures that are fun and have a better image.
Here are 10 points that will be presented in the lesson.
A phone is chosen often because of many factors. Camera is just one of those. But if priority is given to photography preferences, choose a phone with camera capabilities / photographic features that match the needs, preferences, quality is also important. No need for 2, 3 cameras should not be purchased; If there is a clear need, find out to buy and use it all, lest you pay the money you have paid. Each focal point has a different purpose for taking pictures, find out in the illustration below.
Is there a wide angle caemra?
Need 2x telephoto camera for app to remove fonts?
Does super-tele camera need?
Each company will create different camera interface features. Even if the basic properties are the same, they are different, using words, or symbolic interfaces. Then each company, each of which has the same features, its own features, image processing features of each company. So, understanding the interface and the effectiveness of each feature is often less crowded. Only those who take a lot of pictures find out, or they like technology to find out, common users who are exposed almost do not find out the source, to use and fully exploit for taking photos. mine. See illustration for reference below.
Or do you just like to be fully automated, don't you have to choose what feature?
Or are there many different options?
Metering and focusing are very important in taking photos with your phone. Most shooting interfaces of metering and focusing phones are one. You try to touch the screen, we say the blinking square on the screen is usually the metering point and focus on the object to capture. You try to touch different light / dark areas, you will see that the metering square works (metering and adjusting the light of the whole frame varies differently). Therefore, it is very important to measure where to control the light for the image and to show the intention of shooting.
See the following situations:
I measured light on the edge of the wall (yellow square position).
The light in the briefcase will burn white. When measuring light on the edge of the wall, the right side of the wall is bright and sharp there, but the other bright areas will be redundant and white.
I changed the metering point (golden square at the briefcase), at this moment the pair was bright, around the dimly lit and dark walls. If you like shooting dark backgrounds, choose a light-off theme like this.
Metering at the medium bright area between two bright deflection zones. The bag was a little too bright, but saw the shelf.
Choose another metering point on the briefcase to reconcile the two light deflection areas that are the pair and the wooden shelf at an acceptable level.
Metering in a medium bright area so that the airspace remains detailed and sees a bit of people.
Or use HDR and metering in bright areas to accept less detail
Metering and focusing at a basket point, the top will be slightly blurry
Determine the light source and select the light direction
- There are two basic light sources: natural light source (sun) and artificial light source (light sources).
- There are main light directions: Horizontal light, oblique light, back light, convenient light …
- When practicing photography, you should practice determining the light source, or light sources that act on the object (the main light source and additional light sources such as sunlight through the window and the light in the room); then you determine which direction of light is the direction of light on the object. Then you choose which shooting angle to get the best, most reflective light for the photo frame.

About frame and frame layout
Always believe in your first feeling when surprised by a scene. It is always the most intuitive intuition. You will know what you are shooting, what needs to appear in the frame and what to remove. What you want viewers to see immediately and in detail what sub-links in the frame. And then, sometimes holding up the phone and pressing it right away, maybe the photo will not be satisfactory. A lot of situations, must move to have more views, true to the idea and feel of the scene more.
Standing far away or wider is the context of both the door frame and many people compared to the bottom
Approaching or zooming, only grab faces in a door frame
The scene is that the photographers are taking pictures
Approaching and shooting the scene is just the driver …
Taking close-ups is like this
Backing a few steps, the image content will change like this
The elements that appear in the frame are interlinked, you will have a better picture, convey your message to your viewers better and more meaningful. Look around what you intend to capture and frame the composition. What appears in the frame is what you want and why. If you are not satisfied with the messy context, move the position to choose a perspective that looks more like you want.
Go find the subject taken
We, instead of classifying photos, are simpler with static and dynamic themes to make it easier to practice photographic practice. These two types will have a slightly different handling and response. The subject identifier is either static or dynamic so that practice will gradually get used as a reflex and handle the recording phone more effectively.
Finding a place that has more details because the static scene has a lot of time
It doesn't run anywhere, moving to find the angle you like
I took a lot, because it was still
Like to choose this one
Fast soup and reaction
Passing away will not repeat
Suddenly should always be ready to shoot
Seeing the camera is turning away and hiding right away
Predict and wait for shooting
Always ready to shoot. If you store the phone too well, you won't be able to keep up with many movements for a moment that appears to make you love it. They will pass away and never repeat. If you are not ready to pull out the camera to quickly handle the camera launch … you will not get the beautiful moments. But, a lot of situations, waiting like a fisherman, fishing and waiting …
Predict and wait …
See from afar … move the stand ready
On the balcony, see from a distance and wait for it to be taken
He talked, waited for him to turn up
Simply say, the position where you stand in the scene you want to capture, or the position you place your phone to capture a scene … is the angle of shooting. The phone is usually a fixed focus lens, each camera is a focal length, the position from the camera towards the scene is because you, a small teleport will change the content of the image. Try taking 10 photos with 10 different views of an object. After that, you choose the best view. It's a way to practice shooting, then you'll get used to and see a different world, becoming a natural reflex every time you look at a scene.
Don't stand up and take the camera up there!
Low angle, high angle, near, far …
Look up sometimes also has something
Sit close with him
Famous photographers and many unpopular people often remind us of this sentence: as close as possible, or "the image is not good because it is not close enough". It is a suggestion to approach closer to the character, especially, street photography, people, activities, … will have visual effects for the photo when shooting close, especially The angle of the phone lens is always quite wide, the closer approach will focus more on the subject and more vivid.

This plate is standing far away, afraid they don't like it, but the poster is closer because they are happy
Come closer and everyone is happy
Come to know what the baby is trying to lift up
Virtually every company will direct users to a few separate effects, and its own photography features by algorithm. These special effects are also derived from basic photography when using the camera, but now the algorithm makes a lot of changes to us. Good exploits also have interesting photos.

Install the phone with one or two photo editing applications that are right for you to edit the picture for more adjustment. A photo is taken seriously, it is completed after you make it more perfect. Nobody needs to see a picture you say is "original image" but it has a lot of junk or defects that it can be post-production. Unless you are a journalist, documentary and photo provided to the newspaper. I use snapseed and VSCO. Cherish each of your works!
Read knowledge articles, learn techniques, see pictures of masters to cultivate more. Often, many of you will be very excited to take photos, roll out many photographic equipment, then after a while feel stuck in something, lose your original innocence, bored to take … See beautiful photos of others, attending photo talks, discussing about trends in photography … is also a way to nurture inspiration.
