It’s tiring so I no longer wish to carry my DSLR anywhere I go.

I am happy with my smartphone.  And it goes with me everywhere I go.

Make the most of these tricks if you want to learn how to take some good pictures and to become a pro photographer with using the smartphone at your home.

1) Bring out your Uniqueness:

Photography is an art. And when it comes to art I believe nobody is “The Best”, because all of the artists have always something unique to offer.

I guess that is the real beauty of art.

We all see this world with our blessed eyes differently.

And so you can show the world the way you see.

All you have to do is to bring in what you see in your photography.

Just be yourself.

Wherever you’ll go, your phone’s gonna go with you, so you never know when you catch a sight that you wish to capture.

2) Use Grid-Lines:

Using Grid-lines while help you align your camera to exactly what you want to snap. Sometimes we don’t really understand and are not able to balance the portrait.

Well, that is what grid-lines are for. They make sure your image stays in balance and the rotation too.

I can say this with a confidence that most of the people don’t use grid lines and that what makes their pictures out of a little shot, for example, take a look at this photograph that I took.


Seems a little tilted, doesn’t it? That’s only because I didn’t use the grid option while taking this one!

3) Keep The ZOOM Minimum:


Most of the zoom option which comes with smartphones are digital zooms, meaning they simply decrease the quality of an image.

When it comes to phone cameras, zooming the picture might not be a good idea.

Because when you try to zoom and then capture a picture, you get low-resolution images and the whole picture quality drops down.

Non-zoomed photos are always better than the zoomed ones in case of phone cameras.

But If you really want to zoom the images out, just take the image and crop the later on!

Whatever you are trying to capture, use your hands and feet’s to stand a little closer to the subject and not mountains away.

4) Use Blur Image Application:

Yup! This is not taken from a DSLR!

It’s all the magic of the Image Blur application which is free to download!

This is a supplement for the non-zooming option. But it is more than that.

If you want to take a picture of an object, get close to it and simply take ‘its picture.

5) Flash; the source of evil:

whatsapp-image-2016-10-30-at-4-10-06-pm-3I don’t get it why do cameras even have an option of flash in the settings and why does it keep reminding you to use flash when it is completely unnecessary.

I mean take a look at a picture I just took… look how flash ruins all of the essences of the picture.

Flash can ruin a very good photo even when the lighting is not so good.


The tricks mentioned above are very easy to follow.

They will definitely help you to become a good photographer from a random snapper.

You will have a better sense of taking pictures and you will feel good about it.
