In the days of powerful phone cameras, editing apps and filters, we've all come close to the photography experience. For a pretty, Insta-worthy picture, you really don't need a DSLR anymore. Professional photography is different, of course, but it's simpler to take a shot for your memory bank and social media feed.
If you're thinking about taking your photography skills up a notch, note down these mobile photography tips and you'll make an instant impact on your Insta-feed.
In digital photography, a landscape mode refers to photographs clicked of a scene or scenery and a single object. When taking photos in this mode, the camera will automatically focus on as much of the scene as possible by using a large depth of field i.e. a measurement that represents the range of distances within an image where the focus is acceptably sharp.
When you want to click a photograph of someone and capture their personality, key characteristics, and charisma, just snapping a quick picture isn't enough. This is when portrait photography or portraiture comes into play. This basically refers to clicking a single or group of subjects together using exposure, lighting, shutter speed and so much more.
We're pretty sure you know what a selfie is but for those of you living under a rock, a selfie is a self-portrait type of an image typically taken on a smartphone's front camera. This can be held just with the hand or it can be suspended on a selfie stick. So get set and *pout*. Cue lemme take a selfieee!
So ready set, snap!
