Tips and Tricks for Mobile photography

1. Keep Your Phone Stable

 Keeping the phone stable makes the photo sharp and clear. To avoid blurry images, you can follow some tricks, such as keeping your posture correct. You can click using the volume button for convenience. In Samsung galaxy phones, you can customize the click button to where your finger reaches and is comfortable with clicking pictures easily or you can use tripods.

2. Avoid Using the Zoom Feature

I recommend not using zoom features while clicking with bare hands as the phone needs to be stable, or you will end up with blurry and noisy images. If you have a tripod for the phone’s stability, you can use the zoom feature and do not forget to use a remote for clicking pictures so that you do not shake the phone.

3. Using Light
