One of the innovations that technology managed to pull up is with regards to objects that we use for communications, especially, mobile phones.
By looking at how mobile phones developed, it is easy to notice that what was once used for communications are now capable of doing a lot of operations. We can now use our mobile phones to connect to the internet or to manage files like computer functions. Furthermore, most mobile phones today have their own cameras for user’s convenience. However, the fact is that the images taken with a mobile camera is not always in good quality compared to what a real camera can produce. Mobile phone camera pictures are not the best but nonetheless, there will always be a time when we need a camera and the mobile phone is the only option. Do you still want to get the best image possible? Then, here are some tips for you to follow.
Choose a Well Lit Area
The most efficient way to get a better image using a mobile phone camera is by making sure that the subject is well-lit. A subject exposed to better lighting will come out clearer than taking a shot of it in shady or darker areas. It is better to use the mobile phone outdoors than indoors. In any case that you need to use it indoors, you have to experiment with different areas and angles to get the kind of clarity you are looking for. However, keep in mind that lighting has a huge impact to the images you will be producing. You may want to use the different settings of white balance to get the ambience you need in accordance to the lighting available.
Be Closer and Still
Once you get the lighting you need, it is now time to go closer to your subject and look for the perfect angle. The most common mistake among the images taken by mobile phone cameras is that the subject is so small to recognize. Keep in mind that the subject should always be emphasized in any of your images. A simple step is to go closer and do not rely on digital zoom alone. Pictures taken by mobile phone camera with digital zoom is more pixellated than taking the shot without using the digital zoom feature.
In addition, phone camera users must stay still while taking the shot. After hitting the shot button, it does not necessarily mean that you can already move the phone away from its original place before taking the image. Some cameras take a little while before producing the image and every person must become wary of this. Remain still until the image comes out of the screen.
Browsing the images taken through the mobile phone LCD is different from browsing the images through the computer screen. There are times when an image that looks unpleasant from the mobile screen comes out very good from the computer screen. Hence, experts claim that frequent users of mobile phone cameras should never delete unpleasant images immediately. It is better to bring those images to the computer screen and check whether these images are good or not. It is difficult to check what are good pictures and what are not by using the phone alone because the screen resolution of the phone is smaller compared to the computer. Hence, one does not simply judge an image by phone alone because its efficiency must put into the test through a computer.
