4 Tips On iPhone Photography.

Photographers #1 Motto: Keep shooting & have a camera with you at all times. I know that sounds like a no-brainer, but sometimes It's frustrating having a heavy camera with you all the time. During a normal day most of us just utlize our camera phones, since it serves multiple purposes and is a part of our everyday lives.

Now, I'm not saying leave your DSLR at home and start shooting mobile (because that would be crazy) but, if you don't have your DSLR camera, there are still ways to make your camera phone photographs look great and even some-what professional!

Here are some tips I've generated that are easy and can improve your snapshots.

1.  Always Shoot In Landscape
- It gives you a larger visual and more to capture. This allows your snapshots to be larger in size and easier to crop, edit, etc.

2.  Use The Grid
- The rule of thirds. A rule that has been embedded into every photographer's mind since the day they picked up their first camera. The iPhone appreciates the rule of thirds too, as they have a feature that allows you to grid your photograph to better balance and align your image to perfection.

3.  Use Headphones As Shutter Release
- Only a few people know that the Volume Up button on your Apple headphones will also snap a photo when using your camera. This is perfect when you are wanting to take ariel shots or hard to reach photos without seeing the screen as you take them.

4.  Use Camera Burst 
- One of my personal favorite features with shooting on an iPhone is the camera burst option. Simply keep your finger held down on the camera circle and it will take a burst of photographs until you lift your finger. This makes it impossible to miss those perfect moments when shooting.  I sometimes take up to 30 photos each burst, which sounds overwhelming, but the iPhone let's you select your favorite photos from the burst and separate them from the rest. Very convenient!
