We know right now during lockdown being at home can get a little boring or you struggle to find new things to do. We all have phones so use this time to get creative with photography done on your trusted handset.

Here are some things to consider when taking photos on your phone

  1. Use gridlines to balance your shot
  2. Set your camera’s focus.
  3. Focus on one subject.
  4. Embrace negative space.
  5. Find different perspectives.
  6. Play with reflections.
  7. Use leading lines.
  8. Look for symmetry.
  9. Play around with colour blocking.
  10. Avoid zooming in.
  11. If you use flash, only do so during the day.

You have your phone on you every day, so practicing to take the perfect photo will be hugely beneficial and it will open up a whole new world for you. Photography is a beautiful thing, you capture a moment that you will never have back, it freezes in time a memory that you can relive by looking at your photos. We all know how memory can fade or become a little blurry so having photos to look back on are priceless, you will remember how you felt that moment, the smells, the surroundings.

Enjoying photography will mean you use it more often and that is not a bad thing.  Capture and enjoy!
