6 Mobile Photography Tips you must know – 2018

November 5, 2019

Welcome to Pixel Viilage and I’m Radhakrishnan. In the photography world there is this saying that digital
photography actually democratized photography.
If you come to really think about it something else is actually really
contributed to democratizing photography A mobile So in this video we want to give you few
tips on how to improve your mobile phone photography. But for
demonstration purposes we’re going to two-and-a-half-year-old phone. Just only to
show you that it’s not exactly the four the phone or quality or resolution that
really matters, what matters is how you use those equipments. So onto the shoot.
So, first thing first its mobile phone photography all right but it’s photography
Which means a mobile phone should be given the same respect which you would
give a conventional photography camera. I have few tips for you, first let’s start
with the lens itself, because it’s a mobile phone and usually carry it around
on your body, it’s highly likely that the glass in front of the lens could be
smeared with oil, body lotion, dust etc which will affect the quality of the
image. Carry a small lens cleaning cloth something that you would use to clean
your specs for example. Make sure that your the glass is cleaned properly. The
next one is go into the camera app and activate a three by three grid and as we
go along I will explain to you how to use those grids effectively and compose
your image. Last but not the least is holding the phone itself I’ve seen lots
of people holding the phone like this with one hand and trying to take a
picture with the other. Obviously you’re going to end up with a shaken image. I
recommend that you hold the phone with both hands exactly how you would hold a
camera. Pull the hands and use either your thumb or your index finger to take
the picture and that will help you shoot a sharp image. Now let’s move around and
see if we can get good subjects to shoot I just located two gentlemen sitting
there you know having their conversation after their morning walk, let me walk
towards some take their permission and see if I can get some interesting shots
there with them So I’ve asked for the permission they’ve
granted me the permission to shoot. So next thing is when I look at them very
interesting faces, looking at the place where they are sitting in there are lot of
distraction in the background but they have very interesting faces. If you can
just walk tell me till that wall there yeah please thank you thank you thank
you please. So typically when you you know you pull out the camera what will
you do you take out okay he will pose for you and you take a picture correct?
But of course you got the person, now, since you’ve got an interesting face the
best way is to go close fill the frame and shoot. Now, I’m going to go close, nice.
Now the background is bright I think if I but make the background a little dark
this picture will improve. So, I’m going to move them in front of this like see
now look at the light and see the difference. Wonderful. To me it is very
nice The next one is use of frame within the
frame. So, when I looked at it I saw this interesting black doorframe and I
thought I will frame him inside that okay can you come here please? You know
in a situation like this you would pick up your frame and pick up the camera and
take our picture but if you want to really make the picture look interesting
you can use the next direction, which is include this frame in our frame. So sir
can you come inside stand inside come forward slightly yes and face that way
so because he is framed that picture suddenly got a different dimension very
nice So this is another way of capturing the
image Varun is my friend’s son and he’s a young
YouTuber. What would you like to give to your details to our viewers? My channel’s name is LabScienceTheOne. It deals with all your questions about science. So please watch it. Okay wonderful.
So he’s going to be a you know a hit on YouTube soon. So there they were playing,
you know, basketball so I thought I can demonstrate the rule of third. So let me
arrange. Okay Varun, can you stand there? Alright you come in squat in front
right. There are many ways I can take this shot. I can do a shot like this, I
can shoot like this, but the best way would be to keep them at that golden
point of the frame, so you got a nice ambiance. Wow fantastic. See the picture The next one is using the leading lines
in your frame and what we do is we shoot in this step here. Nice great
attitude okay The trick is to find lines in your frame
architectural or otherwise which will lead your eye to your subject and use
those line to point towards your subject and take a shot. So another one we’re
going to see is the role of odds. The rule says that if you’re shooting some
object, try and get then in odd numbers, 1, 3, 5 et cetera. Let’s take a look at it, so
I’m going to shoot a flower Very nice. Now, let me add one more here Now you saw 1 & 2 & the rule of odd says
the third one will make it very interesting. So, the odd numbers will make
a better picture than the even numbers Yeah and I agree
Great We will see one more before we wind up
it’s about symmetry. We as human beings love symmetry, we knowingly or
unknowingly enjoy and appreciate symmetry. There is something, happens I
think it’s culturally ingrained in your head to appreciate symmetry. Now if you
consciously bring in symmetry in your shot that shot is likely to look better.
Let’s see how. Now this area, nice greenery but I can also see nice
symmetry roared the line of the you know manicured garden and the trees and those
lines and the backdrop so well if I can just take a picture like this and of
course I got a picture but if I slightly fine-tune and use the grid lines in the
camera viewfinder and align the lines perfectly you get a nice symmetry I can
also take in the lines in the building and frame it again so I’m using multiple
rolls here now I have aligned all lines everything so what’s that simple use these simple
guidelines and follow it and you will be able to generate or you’ll be able to
take very interesting images let’s recap if you see an object which is
interesting an object or a person or a face which is interesting and the
backgrounds the surroundings are distracting go close fill the frames and
take that shot look for frames or within your frame compose your subject in front
of that frame and make another interesting frame make use of the
gridlines in your camera and position your subjects in that golden points and
make an interesting image keep looking for interesting lines in your frame
which will guide your eye onto your subject
that’ll create another interesting frame rule of odds is another interesting
guideline which you can put into practice to create interesting images
symmetry is another one once you train your eye to start looking for this it
will become your second nature if you follow these guidelines while taking
pictures from now on soon you will become an expert and
photography will become your second nature we would like to know if this has
been useful if yes give us a thumbs up and subscribe our Channel and also do
let us know in our comment column well we’ll be back with you with another
video on photography very soon bye for now
