TIPS

1) Keep an eye out:  Recognizing the right photo moment is important if you want a collection of cleverly good photos! It’s not a posed or prepared moment but it often happens WHEN you least expect it WHERE you least expect it! When you see something, rush for your phone at all times! Don’t give up because you think you might miss it. You might not! What are you trying to capture? A sunset, person? animal? person? car driving away with balloons?  The camera is not what makes a good photograph, it’s really the photographer’s eye! This is why photographers can take masterpieces with just their smartphones! The filters and features are just a plus to enhance whats already there!

This is not a typical scene! I had to get it! I didn’t tell the driver to wait on me! She was in the middle of moving so they can exit the yard. I pulled out my phone and captured photos as rapidly as possible. I got it!
The concert had these special lights and used it only at specific moments. This gold ray of light would brighten each head in the crowd. Because this was a worship night concert with songs centered on Jesus, I tried hard to capture this moment more than all the others. There is no need to tell a story about this picture. It speaks for itself and shows WHO this gathering is all about. What an amazing night!
Simply captured this beautiful bold red pepper in the process of making a chopped salad!

2) Rule of thirds:  See the four points? It is a theory that your viewers’ eyes naturally gravitate to these four points which makes it the ideal places for your photo subjects! You may wonder how to do this! Cameras and phone have this setting to guide you.

For iPhones! Go to Settings- Phone and Camera- Scroll down to grids then turn it on!

The cake is right where I want it on the left third. I took this photo around Valentines day last year as Compass Cafe introduced a new cake!

3) Get on it’s level: An interesting way to get to capture an item and emphasize the details. It’s also a great approach when photographing children; especially toddlers! These were both taken with an iPhone!

I rested my phone on the table and flipped it upside down to capture this. When holding the phone normally, the camera was way higher than the bracelet. A previous birthday celebration helped to make the scene more colorful!
