The best camera you’ve got is the one on you right!? I’ve mentioned this before in  my guide on  camera gear but my favourite camera to use is the iPhone. With so many advances in technology in our  phones and the development of new apps – achieving the perfect mobile photo isn’t impossible.

FIND THE LIGHT

Natural light is the best light it’s free and mostly always available. Take photos in the early mornings, evenings before sunset, or find nice shaded areas with even light that won't  give you harsh shadows (unless that’s what you’re going for of course!)

CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE

Look for different viewpoints and angles to add interest. Don’t be afraid to get low or climb something to get higher! Find a perspective that is unique.

Don’t be afraid to get in close. Just like changing your perspective getting in closer can provide a more interesting shot.

NO FLASH

The technology for on camera flash is getting better but I would say more times than none on camera flash is a no go. It’s usually too bright, creates some awful looking shadows and well just doesn’t look good. So how do you take photos in the dark? You don’t! Well halfway true – some camera phones work okay in low lighting you can alternatively find a different light source or take a snapshot in your memory.

EDIT DON'T FILTER

Make your images stand out – applying filters doesn’t work for every photo. Every photo has a different lighting, subject and story use apps that provide full on editing capability where you can adjust things like brightness, contrast, temperature etc. I like using Snapseed.

COMPOSITION

Composition is king. Don’t forget about the rule of thirds, use positive and negative space, find converging lines and don’t forget to look at what is behind your subject.
