Five Photography tips for iPhone
iPhone has an awesome Camera to click the best possible pictures. When Apple talks about the iPhone, first thing they talk about the camera quality of the device. In the recent leaks about the new upcoming iPhone 7 Plus it is expected to have the dual camera for the better photography.




Today in this article we are going to talk about the 5 tips which will help you to get the maximum out of iPhone camera.

Keep Your Photos Simple

Steve Jobs used to say, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” and he was clearly onto something.

New photographers often overcomplicate their photos. Too many details can distract the viewer, making it hard to create a harmonious composition.

One interesting subject is all you need to create a memorable photo, and it’s easy to get the composition right when your photo has just one subject. Don’t worry if most of your photo is filled with empty space. This will only make your subject stand out more.

Simple compositions are also ideal for social media. If you share your iPhone photos on Instagram or a similar photo-sharing network, people will view your photos on the tiny screen of their phone. As a result, much of the detail you have in your photos will be lost to the viewer.
Keep your iPhone photos simple and your audience will enjoy them more.

Shoot From a Low Angle

The majority of iPhone photos are shot from the chest height of an adult. That may be convenient, but there are usually more creative options! You can easily improve your photos by finding a more interesting angle, and often the best way to do that is to simply shoot from a lower perspective.

There are two great reasons for shooting from a lower angle.


First, your photos will automatically become more intriguing because they allow the viewer to see the world in a new way.

Second, by shooting from a lower angle you can show your subject with nothing but the sky in the background. This is a good technique for removing unwanted distractions and making your subject stand out.




Show Depth in Your Photos

Most photos – and especially landscape photos – look better if they have subjects in the foreground, middle ground, and background. By following these simple iPhone photography tip, you’ll immediately make your images more three-dimensional.

The photo above is made more interesting by showing the trees and orange sand in the foreground, the large orange rock in the middle ground, and the forests in the background.

Include Shadows in Your Composition

When the sun is low, the shadows can often be even more interesting than the actual subjects of your photos. A great iPhone photography tip is to shoot when shadows are present, and to include them in your composition whenever possible. The longest shadows are created when the sun is lowest – at the “golden hour.”

Take Silhouette Photos

A silhouette is the dark shape of an object taken against bright light. Silhouetting is one of the most interesting iPhone photography techniques, and it’s easy to achieve.

Here’s a simple iPhone photography tip – to take silhouettes with your iPhone, simply shoot against the source of light. Your iPhone will take care of the rest.


This photo was taken from the shadow of the chimney, so the sun is located directly behind it. Since it was shot against the source of light, all the subjects in this photo automatically become silhouettes.

Silhouetting works best when the sun is low above the horizon near sunset or sunrise. Just find a subject with an interesting outline (such as a person), make sure the light is coming from behind your subject, and take a silhouette photo!

If the silhouette doesn’t appear dark enough, you can reduce the exposure levels to make the image darker.

Photograph Reflections

Reflections make wonderful iPhone photography subjects. While you can find reflections on many different surfaces including glass, shiny cars, and ice, water is probably the best surface for reflection photography.




Unlike mirrors, water can distort reflections in waves. To get effects like those in the photo above, hold your iPhone just an inch above the surface of the water.

If there are no waves, you can always create them yourself by moving your hand through the water. The photo below was taken just after the water was deliberately disturbed.
