Smart ways to use your smartphone to capture high quality pictures

With each passing year, smartphone cameras are improving significantly. Besides the fidelity, camera placement has also undergone several changes today, especially the front-facing lens. 

Today, pop up camera phones are common, where a small lens emerges from the top portion of a handset when clicking selfies. After this picture clicking is complete, the pop-up camera retracts into its place once again, leaving no external trace of the lens. It has increased the display-to-body ratio considerably, enabling phone companies to eliminate bezels.

Tips to click the best pictures on your smartphone

Regardless of whether you own pop up camera phones or ones with other regular technology, clicking a quality picture on your handset requires specific skills. Following are some tips that professional photographers swear by, which can also help you amp up your phone shots.

  • Always keep your camera lens clean

A camera usually comes with a lens protector, which can keep dirt and foreign material at bay from delicate lens surface. A smartphone does not come with such a feature. Thus, users must clean their phone’s camera lenses regularly. Just before clicking a shot, use a microfiber cloth to wipe away any dust from the camera. Keep in mind that dust can accumulate on pop up camera phone lenses as well.

  • Framing a shot is important

Framing your shots carefully is one of the most important skills as a photographer. Fortunately, phone users can rely on automated framing features on their handset’s camera applications. For instance, Android users can select the ‘Camera’ option under ‘Settings’. From there, they need to choose ‘Grid Lines’ and pick their preferred framing technique. 

  • Think twice before zooming in to click pictures

Most smartphones are enabled with digital zoom, which is unlike optical zoom solutions found in cameras. Digital zoom crops and resizes the images, which can lead to pixelated and muddy shots. This is why many mobile manufacturers today employ multiple camera setups, which can emulate optical zooming.

Thus, if you want to zoom in when clicking pictures without any distortions in the resulting images, you need to shop for a mobile phone carefully. Most high-end handsets house quality lenses capable of extensive zooming, but their higher price point may discourage some consumers. 

Bajaj Finserv EMI Network members can, nevertheless, resolve financial shortfalls through the NBFC’s No-Cost EMI facility. However, others may need to avoid zooming-in to capture impeccable pictures on their handsets.

  • Always prefer natural light photography

If you have natural light available, do not utilise your phone’s flash under such circumstances. Often individuals block off sunlight when taking pictures, instead choosing artificial light sources. As a result, the clicked picture looks unnatural and unflattering. The best alternative to this is to use the daylight in creative ways to make your shots seem perfect.

At night though, you need a phone capable of low-light photography. Once again, such handsets tend to be on the expensive side. Utilising a Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card can thus be the ideal solution to acquiring such high-end devices when you shop for a mobile phone. You can repay the credit so utilised via up to 24 instalments.

These pre-approved offers are also available on personal loans, credit cards, etc., ensuring easier and faster credit applications. You can check your pre-approved offer by providing a few essential details, including your full name and contact number.

Such financing option allows you to choose freely between pop up camera phones or any other handset that helps improve the quality of clicked images. Moreover, an affordable purchase ensures you can direct the funds for spending on other required expenses as well.
