Everyone wants to take better everyday photographs of their children but not everyone has a professional DLSR camera, however almost everyone owns a cell phone which has camera in it. Our new iPhones have quite the camera in them so achieving a pleasing to the eye photograph isn’t so hard anymore! I took most of the image in this post with my old iPhone 4s or 5s and I currently have the 6s.
It has taken me a couple of years to learn some hard lessons and mistakes while taking pictures with my phone to come up with this complete list and to get the most out of my iPhone camera.
Exhibit A; before I had a clue.
Does this look a lot like your everyday pictures? I hope this post changes that! What do you think is wrong with this image? It’s a snapshot of my cutest little Steven, I love it, because I love him. The photo however is horrible. The ugly pink boarder, horrible lighting and miss focus. Oh and don’t forget that dated filter. The image is also grainy, but I tend to look past that. Partly due to the fact that it was probably taken on an older phone (I believe the iPhone 4), and a little due to me kind of liking the look of grain in my photography.
So how do you take better iPhone photos of your family?
