Want to master the art of taking a beautiful picture with your iPhone. My amazing friend Silvia from Anchor Studios shares her 5 tips showing us how to take amazing pictures with your phone.

5 tips on how to take amazing pictures with an iPhone:

TIP 1: Hold your phone properly to avoid movement

The way you hold your phone plays an important role in how sharp your photos turn out. In order to get in-focus photos, you need 
to ensure you’re holding your phone as steady as possible. If you move or shake while taking a photo you’re likely going to end up
with blurry photos.  The image below shows you my recommended ways of holding your phone in your hands for the most stable 

TIP 2: Keep things simple

Whether you’re taking a photo of a person or product, you want to keep your background as simple as possible to focus on the subject. 
Remove any clutter or distractions from your background as well as pay attention to what your subjects are wearing. Simple, neutral
clothes looks great and doesn’t distract from your subjects. 

TIP 3: Lock your focus and exposure to get sharp photos

The AE/AF Lock feature is so important for achieving amazing photos with the correct focus and exposure (lighting). Simply 
tap the screen to choose the part of the image you want to focus on and expose. Than tap and hold on your focal point until 
you see an AE/AF Lock banner appear at the top of the screen. Your focus and exposure is now locked and your ready to take 
photos in that setting without your iPhone reverting back to auto

TIP 4: Take photos from your subjects level

Most people take iPhone photos from chest height. This is usually the most convenient way of taking a picture because it’s the 
most convenient for us. But there are usually more creative options for taking great photos including getting down to your subjects level. 
This simple tip will instantly improve the photos of your children. This may mean bending down, or even laying on the floor.

TIP 5: Editing with Apps

Editing a photo gives it that extra wow factor. The challenge of course is that unless you’re a photographer, then you’re unlikely to know your way around Photoshop or Lightroom. But there are lots of apps out there that are pretty easy to get used to. My favourite 2 are Snapseed and VSCO. With simple techniques, you can go from the before and after.
