How to Take Better Camera Phone Pictures

How to: Take Quality Camera Phone Pics

I love my iPhone, but sometimes I wonder if I should blame my phone or my photography skills for the blurry pics that sometimes end up in my photo library. Cell phone picture quality can depend on a variety of factors including the number of megapixels and flash capabilities. If you happen to have a decent camera phone, here are some tips to help you take great pics.

  • Keep your camera still — The more still your subject, the clearer your image will be. This is especially true in low-light environments where shutter speed is much longer.
  • Make sure your subject is well-lit — If your camera doesn't have a built-in flash, try to take a pic in an environment with decent lighting. If you are indoors, simply turn on some lights!
  • Get close — Because camera phones usually have low resolution, it's best to take images as close as you can, but be sure to stay within proper focus range.
  • Keep your camera lens clean — We all know how dirty cell phones can get. Just wiping off your lens with the proper cleaner and a soft cloth can make a world of difference.

Lmao, if those girls in that picture are trying to take a picture together (they're posin' like they are!) they have to turn the phone around in order to do so! LOL.
