So today I am gonna be showing you the 4 incredible tips and tricks to improve your smartphone photography but before we begin, be sure that you know the basic terms about the camera.
  • ISO
  • Aperture

  • White balance
  • Exposure 
Let's now get started!

1. Clean the camera lens.

The very first thing to keep in mind before taking any picture is to clean the camera lens from Oil, Dust, Sand, Water or anything like that because it gives you very poor quality image output. The picture is blurry and noisy and not looks good and make sure that you should clean the camera lens with a soft material like cotton or cotton fabric cloth because the harsh material will harm your camera lens.

2. Don't use the stock camera app.

The most common mistake most of the people do is to use the stock camera app of their smartphone but trust me if you have to take better pictures with your smartphone, you should start using the third party apps like Bacon camera, Camera MX, Camera FV, Manual camera etc-. These are the camera apps by which you can manually control your camera settings like ISO, Shutter speed, Aperture, Exposure etc-. I suggest you the Bacon camera app because it is quite good and available on google play store at free of cost. Some of the basic settings while taking pictures are shown below.

3. Don't use flash.

While capturing any picture, make sure that you should turn off your flashlight because the light of the flash is very harsh which is not good for your picture as the picture becomes very poor, there are a lot of shadows, highlights are not good, poor dynamic range etc-. Instead of using flash you can capture your photo under adequate lighting conditions. Natural lighting is the best for capturing a photo.HDR is also a nice choice as compared to the flashlight.

4.Editing (Color Grading).

The last but not the least is the editing. Editing plays a very important role in beautifying a picture as there are a lot of key factors like color grading, contrast, saturation, brightness, temperature, sharpness etc- on which you have to be the focus on but the main thing is that how you can edit your picture. Sometimes an edited picture doesn't look good as compared to the original one. You can also add some cool filters in your picture to beautify it or you can use Instagram filters. There are a lot of photo editing apps also which are available on play store at free of cost. Example-Picsart, Snapseed, Photolab etc- but my honest recommendation is Snapseed as it is the product of Google.
