Photography Tips: How to Take Professional Photos with Smartphones

In our daily life, we always record the beautiful moments with our mobile phone. Sometimes, we can use the camera function of our mobile phone to take photos, which can also make us feel like a professional photographer taking photos with a SLR. Take HONOR smartphone as an example, and let’s see how to make a big work with it.

1. Light

When choosing to shoot a portrait, it is best to choose when the light is softer in the morning or afternoon, when the side backlights are more likely to be emitted. If you want to take a landscape shot, choose the time before sunrise or after sunset, which will make the scenery more beautiful.

2. Point

No matter what kind of photograph is taken, the picture should be concise, with unique shooting angle and good timing. If you want to showcase a peony in a sea of flowers, highlight your subject in a crowd, or increase the brightness in a low light environment, you can enable Wide Aperture mode to blur the background and highlight your subject to take crisp photos even in low light.

3. Composition

Needless to say, the basic composition method is three-point, s-line, frame, blank, etc. Any beautiful photo should be well coordinated between the composition of the picture, color and lines.

With the above tips, the next step you need to know is use the functions built-in phones. Now, let’s look at the hidden functions of taking photos in HONOR phones.
