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.

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.
