Nowadays, everyone wants to click professional photos as we are hooked to various social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat where we want to look the best among our friends list.

We want to regularly keep our friends posted about our work and personal life, our new office pictures, outings, events, new born baby and our holidays.

But, who has the time for a photo shoot or who wants to spend a bomb on a professional camera, everyone doesn’t have to be a professional photographer.

So, if you are someone who loves clicking pictures, then this is the right place for you. HelloMeets is here with a workshop on how to click a professional photo from your smartphone.

Things you will learn:-

1.Take note of lighting.

One of the most important things to consider when taking photos with your phone is lighting. Bad lighting will kill the best of pictures, even with a decent camera, so when taking portrait photos with your phone, make sure your subject is well lit.

2. Use HDR mode.

HDR is a great mode for taking photos of stationary objects, as long as you have steady hands. HDR (high dynamic range) mode ensures that the lighting and shadows in the photo are evenly exposed. This is particularly useful for photos with high contrast.

3. Use the filters

There are plenty of people out there who love using all the lovely filters you can enhance your photos with. But for casual smartphone photographers, those retro, black-and-white, and other filters can really add character to a photo.

4. Proper Exposure

Exposure means the brightness or darkness of a photo. It’s probably the thing that beginning photographers put the most work into learning.

5. Don’t use zoom!

I think this is the first step towards taking a bad smartphone picture. If you want to zoom in on something, use your legs and move! Don’t forget that this is just a phone, and its opportunities are not those of a DSLR lens.

So, as we know there is a photographer in all of us and there are many more photography tricks that you need to learn for brushing up your photography skills . Say hello to our expert speaker Ahmer on the 16th of October at HelloPhotography
