Get Snap Happy With Your Mobile Phone

We recently joined Gulf Photo Plus at their very cool Al Serkal location for 3 hours of understanding exactly what our mobile phones are capable of (apart from texting, Instagram and the occasional Facebook check). Turns out that our phones are actually seriously good cameras that can capture a great shot or at least edit one into looking fab if the original was less than perfect! Kate from Gulf Photo Plus shares her top 3 tips for better mobile phone images here – and for even more info – book onto one of the courses mamas (3 blissful uninterrupted hours of pure ‘you’ time!).

Tap to Focus

Many phones may automatically try to find a subject to focus on, often this can be just what you need. However if you tap to focus on the screen, you can now tell your camera where you want the focus. This is especially great for portraits or food!

Burst Mode

When your kids are running around and have a great day of play, try burst mode to capture of series of images. Sometimes we miss the smiles or the action, but burst mode will give you multiple images to choose from to find that perfect snap.

On the iPhone it’s as simple as holding down your capture button. For Android or Windows, look at your settings options or see if it’s available in the Pro mode.

Rule of Thirds

Rule of Thirds is a classical rule of composition. Simply put, we place our primary subject in the left, right, top or bottom third of the frame. With this intention we can tell more of a story about a person, or a place. It also gives the viewer, space to move around the image.

This is just the beginning of what you can create on your mobile phone! Head over to Gulf Photo Plus and check out The Art of Mobile Photography, a three hour, intensive on creating great images with your mobile phone. Sign up today!
