5 Tips To Take High Quality Cellphone Camera Photos

Taking photos with your cellphone camera is so common today. It's so convenient to snap away with your phone camera that a lot of people don't even bother to bring their standalone digital camera with them. Look at the wide range and different brands of cellphones with embedded cameras. The consumer is so spoilt for choice for cellphones with camera resolution ranging from 2 Megapixels all the way to even higher than 10 Megapixel cameras. Who knows what will come next to compete with the standalone digital camera.

As of the time of this writing, the standalone digital camera still reigns superior to the cellphone camera. Nevertheless, the gap is closing in.

Here are 5 tips to help you improve on the quality of the pictures taken with your mobile phone camera.

1. Set Your Phone Camera To The Highest Resolution Possible

This goes without saying as higher resolution means clearer and higher quality pictures. In addition, ensure that you get the highest storage capacity memory card that your phone supports. The higher the resolution, the larger the file size of the photo, so a high staorage capacity memory card is useful.

2. Ensure The Camera Lens Is Clean.

As your cellphone is transported in pockets, handbags and exposed to different weather conditions, maintaining a clean lens is a challenge. Most cellphone does not come with a lens cover. Most commonly seen are fingerprints and dust on the camera lens. Use a clean, soft cloth e.g. spectacle cleaning cloth to clean the lens from time to time especially before taking the photo.

3. Ensure your subject is well lit.

Cellphone cameras are well known for low quality pictures under poor lighting.

A well lit subject results in a clear image. Generally, photos taken outdoors fare better than those taken indoors. If you must do it indoors, remember to switch on the lights.

4. Hold Your Camera Steady.

Needlessly to say, all cameras require you to do this to ensure that the photo does not get blurry. This is even more critical when the light conditions are low. Lean your hand with your camera phone against something solid e.g., wall, table, ledge, ensure it is steady before taking the shot.

5. Avoid Using Digital Zoom

Many phone cameras nowadays comes with digital zoom feature. Try not to use it, as it will degrade the quality of the picture making it look even more pixelated. Try to get nearer to the subject instead.

For those who are social-media inclined, most smartphones nowadays allow you to upload the photo immediately to Facebook, Twitter, etc. With a standalone digital camera, you will need a computer to do the same.

Don't tell anyone why your phone camera photo-taking skills had improved, don't even let them know about this article. Who knows? One day, you might even profit from these tips.
