Photography tips for beginners (Using your phone)

Photography has been an exciting medium of expressing a perspective through the world around. For me, photography is about exploring the content and perspective with minimum filter and edits.

But it is not always easy to get the right click, so here are a few tips for beginners:

  • Decide on the story that you want to convey through your picture before choosing an angle. (Although avoid filters; if your story requires a filter, don’t hesitate! )
  • Avoid zooming in too much; it can reduce the quality of your picture (it affects the resolution)
  • Click in natural light as much as possible. (It adds this sense of a clean and pure click to the picture)
  • Use leading lines (It is a great way to grab the viewer’s attention onto the subject matter)
  • If you are trying to click multiple objects, follow the rule of odds, i.e., click an odd number of items. (Unusual as it sounds, an odd number of things can be more aesthetically pleasing in a click)
  • Be patient to way for the right lighting at times! Although it might sound tedious, the perfect natural lighting can help you work with the shadows and give a click that outstands any other.

Most important of all; explore the places around you to find the right content and explore new perspectives! Enjoy
