Why waste money on digital cameras when you already have a great camera in your pocket. The high-quality camera on your iPhone can do wonders like taking gorgeous photos. You just have to know how to use it.

Best way to improve the iPhone camera is to install a custom camera app. Most of those great apps comes with advanced features but usually very expensive and also requires root access. If your phone is still carrier locked, you can go to somewhere like to get your iPhone unlocked quickly. However, in this article we look at some ways you can improve your iPhone camera without breaking the bank.

Keep your pictures simple

Most people make their photos overly complicated by having too much in the frame. This distracts the viewer and makes it almost impossible to create a harmonious picture. To create a memorable picture, you only need to find one interesting subject. Don’t worry about filling in the empty space on the pictures, as it is what will make your subject stand out more.   Keeping your pictures simple also means images shared on social media will work better. Remember that most social media user will view your picture on mobile. So keeping things basic makes it easier for them to appreciate the quality of the image.

Take your pictures from a low angle

Most people take iPhone pictures from their chest height. This is because it is convenient. However, in general it is not the best way. You can improve your photos by finding an angle that is more interesting. One of the best ways to achieve this is by taking your pictures from a lower perspective.

Infuse depth into your pictures

One of the most common mistakes made by people taking iPhone pictures is to take flat pictures that do not show any form of depth. With such pictures, all the subjects are located on the same plane, centred. The best pictures are, however, those taken with the subjects on multiple planes. This is especially true for landscape pictures. Here is more on taking pictures with depth.

Take your pictures from the level of the subject

If you are taking a picture of your child or pet, shooting from the height of a standing adult is not a good idea. This will make your subject disappear into the background. If you are serious about making your subjectstand out in a photo, you need to get down to their height, and get closer if necessary.

Don’t ignore shadows in your composition

When taking pictures, focus is on the subjects being photographed so the shadows rarely get any attention. However, you can take better pictures by paying attention to the shadows when the sun is low. Always being mindful of this can help you take more intriguing, moody images.

Take more silhouette photos

The silhouetting technique is one of the most interesting iPhone photography techniques you can explore. It is also relatively easy to implement. All you need to do is wait for when the sun is low, and get in a position where the light is coming from behind the subject of your photo before you capture. That’s all you need to create a quality Silhouette picture.

With these tips, you can take more stunning pictures with your iPhone, more often.
