11 tips to click awesome photos from iPhone
I personally believe phone camera is the best to click the snaps, as we carry our device everywhere with us and if you make the iPhone or any smartphone camera as the primary camera for you trips or daily usage you reduce your luggage for the trip.  

We do understand you’re feeling about the photography and if you are one of those like me, who loves to click a photo from his or her iPhone camera than today we have some great tips to make your snaps more awesome.

Don’t ignore the obvious

Some things are obvious: Clean your camera lens(es) with a soft, lint-free, lens cloth; Don’t take photos of the sun; keep your thumb out of the frame.

Speedy shots

The fastest way to get to the Camera app: Wake up your iPhone and swipe left across the lock screen.

High Dynamic Range

You should enable High Dynamic Range (HDR) when you are trying to capture the most dramatically colored shots (think sunrises and sunsets). HDR takes multiple images at a range of exposure settings and then combines these to create the best picture. You can set HDR to Auto, On, or Off, but do keep an eye on how much space your Photos are taking on your iPhone to prune them occasionally.

Yellow box

You get better images if you use Focus mode – just tap on the object in the frame you want the camera to focus on. The area of focus is denoted by a yellow box with a sun icon beside it. Tap the sun icon and you can adjust exposure by scrolling your finger up and down the screen. The camera will also apply some exposure to that part of the image, which should also improve it.

Street life

The yellow box has another tool – tap the image to make it appear, get the exposure settings you want, and then tap and hold the display until the box bounces and the camera app will maintain those exposure/focus settings until you quit the app. That’s great for capturing scenes in which you anticipate movement while you take the shot, street scenes for example.

Hey Siri

Siri is the quickest way to take a selfie. Waggle your camera before your face, tap the Home button (or say “Hey Siri” if that is enabled) and say “Take a selfie”. The Camera app launches to the FaceTime camera and you can tap to take your picture.

Use the buttons

Camera shake is a problem when you take snaps with an iPhone. The easiest solution is to hold the smartphone with both hands and elbows close at your sides, and take the picture by tapping the volume controls.

Use the Timer

If you’re not using the feature to take a staged shot, Timer can also help you avoid camera shake. Compose your image, set the exposure to the appropriate settings and tap the Time icon. Choose 3s (three seconds) and you’ll have just enough time to steady your hands after you use the volume or on-screen shutter button to take your shot.

Wired earbuds

You can use your wired Apple earbuds to take a picture. To do so just single click the volume button while the Camera app is open and take the snap.

Apple Watch

You can also use your Watch as a remote shutter – really useful when taking a staged tripod shot.

Get the Grid

The grid helps you get the best possible image composition from what you see by placing an overlay of grid squares on your display, which helps you apply the classic tips of great landscape photography.

These include techniques such as positioning an upright subject with one of the vertical grid lines or ensuring eyes are placed in the upper points of your composition.

You enable Grids in Camera Settings (Settings>Photos & Camera>Grid). Another Setting you may want to change while you are here is ‘Preserve Settings’. Enable this if you want your Camera app to always open in the last camera mode it was used in (eg. Pano, Square, Portrait Mode), rather than the default Photos mode.
