Many people think Android phones are not as good as Apple, but in fact, many Android phones are equipped with high-quality cameras, as long as the right way to get the perfect picture with the mobile phone is very simple, the following brings the Android mobile phone practical tips to take a look.
Understanding Camera Settings
Before you start filming, familiarize yourself with the settings of your phone and camera, and then you’ll be handy. If we can understand different patterns and settings, we can explore and experiment in depth and make shooting more creative.
Make sure the lens is clean.
It seems strange that when using SLR cameras, we may remember to wipe the SLR lens, but it’s hard to remember to wipe the phone lens. Android phone camera does not have a dust-proof scratch protection cover, professional cameras have.
Take a small piece of clean cloth with you, or sew a small piece of microfiber lens cleaning cloth in your wallet and jacket, reminding yourself to wipe your phone lens and screen so that you can make sure your phone is taking the clearest picture. If you are in trouble, you can wipe it directly with a sweatshirt. Don’t forget to wipe the front-facing camera.
Forget the flash. External light source
If the external environment is dark, we will unconsciously open the flash to take photos, but the quality of the picture is always unsatisfactory. In fact, we can completely not use the flash, almost never used. When taking photos, we can look for natural light sources. If you are in a restaurant and want to take a picture of a dish, you can choose a window seat so that you can get the perfect light and the details of the dish.
If you want to take a photo, you can stand in front of the big window. This will not make your face and features “bright”, but it will darken the background, so that you are in the center of attention. If there is no natural light, it is impossible to take a photograph, so it is better to look for an external light source than a lamp or candle when filming. It may seem silly, but almost all the other rays are better than the flash, and with a brighter light, you can control the content and let the part that we want brighten up.
Do not zoom
Like the flash of the Android phone, we should avoid the zoom function. Zoom reduces the quality of the image, and when we edit the photos we may find something amazing that we can cut off before we see it.
It’s hard to remember that Android devices are different from SLR cameras. If we use the Zoom function when shooting with mobile phone, the quality of the image is very difficult to keep consistent.
If you really want to get close to the object you’re shooting, stand up and come near it, not using zoom. Shooting in this way, you can control the object, if the zoom function will reduce the overall quality of the photo.
Explosive shooting and then pick
When shooting a photo, a burst shot is really a lazy shot, but it’s probably the most effective way to take the perfect picture.
Whether it is self-portrait, the scenery, or the shooting of dishes, the use of explosive shooting methods can be no pressure to take a large number of photos, we just need to press the shutter, you can use a quick lens to take a lot of photos, after the film to select the most perfect.
Although many of the photos taken are bad and totally unusable, there are still a handful of gems hidden in them. Take the time to peruse the photos, pick the best ones, and remove the bad ones.
Find a photo editing software that you like
After you’ve taken your picture, you can choose to edit your favorite app editing software. Now there are a lot of software available on the market, each software has its own unique features, such as filters, adjust brightness and contrast, and can even increase text information and stickers.
Photo editing software is a great addition if you don’t have enough confidence in the photos you’re taking. If you are a little worried about the quality of some photos, edit the software slightly to “save” the photos.
Watch your favorite photographer in social media
Sometimes the best photos taken with Android phones are not from the camera app, but from browsing social media, where we see photographers using Android phones to take beautiful pictures and learn from them.
Focus on the photographers in the community media, learn from them, and get some good experience, so we can just look at the good pictures taken by others and go out and try. You can comment, ask him, see how he shoots specific objects in a particular style, or ask them how to edit a particular photo and make it appear in a particular style, and the photographer may respond.
