So many people are thrilled about the new release of the iPhone 6. I am one of them. I am also very disappointed that I won't get an upgrade to my phone for another year. Most of my disappointment has to do with the changes that Apple has made to their camera and the fact that I desperately want to get my hands on that! If you are like me and won't be getting a new iPhone any time soon, let me help! Here are just a few helpful tips that have made my picture taking much better with my current IPhone:
1. Camera+ : this is probably the best app that I have found for gaining control over your pictures. You can control your many facets of your overall frame as well as the different components of your picture.
2. Use the little box: You have all seen this; the square that pops up in the middle of your frame. Did you know that when you tap in the middle of that box, your phone selects your exposure? Also, you can move that box, I suggest moving it to the darkest part of your image and seeing if this helps to give you something that is more evenly exposed.
3. Pay attention to the light: If you are posing people, and I have said this about taking pictures with a camera as well, move them to a place with good light. The easiest way to take a well exposed picture is to put people in the shade. That way no one has weird shadows on their faces and you can expose for a even lighting source. If you are comfortable with being a little more advanced, play with light. Look for highlighting on hair or other neat accents to your photo.
4. Keep your finger on the trigger and steady yourself: The iPhone won't take a picture until you let go of the capture button so hold your figure on the button to set the frame and make sure you are happy, then release your finger.
Good luck with all of this and I hope it helps. Happy Shooting!
