I'm no professional photographer, but I can sure as heck easily tell a good photo from a bad photo in less than 2 seconds. Camera phones in particular have always been scrutinized for taking horrible grainy photos, or low lit photos. Most camera phones are lucky to have 3 mega pixels, mine in particular is a 1.3 mega pixel which many would consider garbage.
Of course the higher the mega pixel, the better the shot. However did you know I can take some pretty gorgeous shots with just a 1.3 mega pixel camera phone? It's true! In fact you can take photos so nice, that you would never think that the shots came from a 1.3 mega pixel.
Get Some Space!
Before getting all trigger happy on your cell though, my first word of
advice would be to BUY a memory card for the cell that way you can
store more photos and practice with taking pictures.
Practice, Practice, Practice Makes Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!
Practice makes perfect!
To execute a nice photo off of your cell phone is not as impossible as
it seems. A few simple things to do and you will be shooting great
Clean That Lens Would Yah?
One major thing you can do when taking photos with your cell phone is
to make sure your lens is clean! I have taken numerous shots with dust
bits on my lens, that have made photos appear blurry, or whited out.
The next thing to remember while talking photos on your camera phone
is to think about where you are. If you are not in a well lit room, you
won't get a very good shot. The best photos I have ever taken on my
camera phone have been outside on sunny days, or inside under very well
light circumstances. If the room is too dark, my photos look bad and
Keep It Steady!!!
A lot of bad photos occur on cell phones due to the fact that the
person taking the picture cannot hold the phone without shaking it. The
key to a great cell phone photo is to keep your hand as steady as
Stand Still Please!
The same stands true to the subject. It is best if the subject your
are photographing sits as still as possible. Fast motions on such a low
mega pixeled camera means blur or a distorted image.
If you have a steady hand, and your target is remaining in one place
and not making any rash movements, you will be able to take a wonderful
I also find that excellent photos on a low mega pixeled camera phone
come out best when you are close to the subject. Group shots from a
distance have a slight chance of looking good, but not as well as an up
close photo with one or two subjects.
At any rate though, capturing photo album photographs using your
camera phone are not impossible. In fact, if you just remember these few
simple steps, you will be taking great shots in no time.
