When using point-and-click or smartphone cameras, one common question from people is how to get clearer images. Do you try capturing the perfect shot, only to find that everyone is blurry? That can be so frustrating! Try these quick tips the next time you find yourself in a photographic moment and see if your images come out much clearer.
Tip 1 – Light up your subject. Whether this means going outside, getting closer to a window, or moving into the available light in the room, the better lit your subject is the crisper the image will turn out.
Tip 2 – Hold still, and use both hands. Our smartphones can be so small and lightweight that we find ourselves shooting pictures one-handed. The movement from your hand can be a big reason for the blurriness in your images. The next time you shoot, try holding the camera with both hands and stand very still. You’ll be surprised what a big difference such a minor change can make!
Tip 3 – Clean your lens. Smartphone cameras can get gunky lenses quickly from keeping them in our pockets, purses, cup holders in the car, and letting the kids play with them. Regularly clean your lens and that will help you be able to create the best and most precise images possible.
