Learn To Get the Most Out Of Your Camera Phone

Bill Webb

Photographer-blogger Bill Webb says your phone’s camera is the one that’s always with you, so it pays to learn its secrets well.

Despite its limitations it can come in handy in many situations. Use it often and use it well; take the time to learn its features, and in time it will serve you well.

Bill’s tips include setting the phone’s camera at its highest resolution, making use of the flash if there is one, and having as much lighting as possible. Junk the so-called “digital zoom” too; they only mess up the image. Get up close instead.

And take lots and lots of pictures. The experience will make you more familiar with your camera phone. You can always delete bad photos and keep the good ones.
