Tips on using the camera

Rule of thirds

Don’t place your subject in the middle of the frame. By placing it a third of the way in,

you achieve a better result.

Hold it steady

Avoid blurry photos by holding the camera steady. Try to steady your hand by leaning

it against a solid object.

Get closer

By getting as close as possible to your subject, you can fill the camera screen view

with your subject.

Consider variety

Think about different angles, and move towards the subject. Take some vertical

photos. Try different positions.

Use a plain background

A plain background helps highlight your subject.

Keep your lens clean

Cell phones are used in all kinds of weather and places, and carried in pockets and

bags. This results in the camera lens becoming dirty and covered with fingerprints.

Use a soft cloth to clean the lens.
