We live in a world where cellphone cameras are almost as powerful as DSLRs. The majority of cellphone photo aficionados are using the iPhone to capture their moments. In this post, we share 3 quick tips for better photos with your iPhone from iphonephotgraphyschool.com.

  1. Simple Photos are Your Best Photos

    The originator of “Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication” was Leonardo Da Vinci. Many have used that quote without understanding its meaning. In photography, it’s essential to keep your photos simple. You don’t want to overcomplicate the shot with multiple subjects unless it’s the big family portrait over the holidays. For the most part, you want one subject and empty space is ok. If you keep your iPhone photos simple, your audience will enjoy them.

  2. Level the Shot of Your Subject

    If you are ever taking photos of your pet or child, then you have to take the shot from their level. If you don’t, the subject appears to be from bird’s eye view. Don’t be afraid to get close!

  3. Symmetry is Crucial

    This is a basic but important photography trick. It can be used in so many ways to make photos make more sense. The most common way to use symmetry is to divide things in halves or quarters. It creates balance in the photo. While many use rule-of-thirds to justify not placing subjects in the middle of the photo, it can be argued that symmetry creates an interesting perfectionist look and feel that most photos do not offer.
