The iPhone itself has a set of top-notch photographic options that you can use to take better photos. These tips might be useful:


The lens, as we know, is the most critical aspect of choosing a picture, however carrying your phone in the pocket or the purse could damage the glass, so make sure the lens is clean at all times.


The iPhone camera has a grid feature that helps you aligning pictures, ensuring that the position of your photo remains. It also helps you in utilizing the ‘Rule of thirds,’ which means breaking the photo down vertically and horizontally.

This will enable you to use a grid with nine squares that you could use to place the visual elements that you need. To turn the grid feature on Setting>Photos>Camera>Turn Grid On.


The iPhone itself has an autofocus feature, and to focus on something, the user must tap the screen twice. To lock in the focus, press and hold it, and an AE/AF LOCK will appear.


If there is a movable object and you want to capture it, use burst by holding on the capture button, and your phone will take multiple shots at the same time. You check these shots later in your images gallery.


The flash of the phone can be troublesome at times, so it is highly recommended to use the natural light while capturing photos.

3. Pay Attention to your Composition


Don’t confuse yourself by adding different details in your picture; focus on what is necessary and the essence of what you’re trying to capture and then surround that object with an interesting background.


If you want your photos to have that professional ‘feel,’ then you will need to get creative and play with angles. Stand on a chair, get on your knees, take shots from different positions, it will surely give a more dramatic look to your pictures.


These techniques will add quality to your pictures, e.g., use a reflection on water or take your photo in high contrast lighting or shoot your subject when the sun is low, creating dramatic shadows and effects.

Hopefully, this guide will prove useful and will ensure that you’ve used the iPhone camera to its fullest. Please do give us your feedback!!
