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