It is relatively easy now to carry one and get the best images from a vacation from just your phone. All you need to do is get used to your phone camera settings and use its capabilities to improve the quality of the images you take.

While most of us prefer to use our phones for taking most of the pictures, be it a casual vacation or a few images for your Instagram blog, it is important for the images to convey the message. Here are a few tips which cover most of the aspects which you can use and see how much better your images become, especially for those serious photography sessions.

CHECK THE LIGHTING

Light can make or break an image. Proper light around your subject and you will be amazed by the quality of it. Similarly, when you shoot an image in poor light, the image quality will be poor even if the smartphone camera is capable. For heavily sunlit or ambient lit images, take your subject to a shade. The light in the shade is diffused and that is exactly what you need for a portrait of a person. Harsh light creates very hard shadows which make the image look very contrasty and uneven. For indoors, place your subject near to the windows where you will have the external light coming in and evenly lighting the subject’s face.
