No matter if you shoot with your phone or with a professional camera, you’re bound to get some blurry or pixelated photos. But there are things you can do to ensure your images come out looking their best. Before snapping your next photo, make sure your phone is set up correctly. The default setting on your iPhone is to take photos in landscape rather than portrait, so if you want to shoot yourself from the waist up or down, you’ll need to change this setting. You can also change your camera’s white balance and exposure settings to get the best possible photos. Finally, make sure your phone is well-lit, especially when you’re taking outdoor photos.
Use the right lighting.
Your iPhone images are great, but they can be enhanced by the right kind of lighting. A small, easy fix is to use a flash, which can even take casual photos from the shadows. If you want to take high-quality photos, invest in a small, portable flash or a light that can be clipped onto your camera.
Capture the right moment.
If you’re looking for flawless photos, start by taking them in RAW, or “unprocessed” mode. This way, you’ll be able to edit your photos later without losing quality. Try to have a good balance of light, color and composition.

Edit your photos.
To make your images look great, start by editing them in the Photos app. Use the manual editing tools to crop, brighten, or sharpen your images. You can also use the filters to add effects like vignettes, fade, or sharpen. If you want to add more editing to your photos, download the editing apps. There are plenty of free editing apps on the app store, including Instagram, which is one of the most popular photo editing apps for iOS.
Use post-production tools.
Editing your photos in the app that came with your phone can be a great option when you want to quickly edit your images and share them. But we recommend going a step further and using post-production software to give your images a professional touch.
Get your tech support.
If you’ve taken a lot of photos, it’s likely some of them are blurry, overexposed or simply not very good. There are a lot of reasons why your smartphone photos might look less than perfect, and in most cases, there’s a quick fix that can make a huge difference. It’s not uncommon for the camera app that comes stock on your smartphone to have several settings that can be adjusted to help you take better photos, and in many cases, it’s just a matter of tweaking a few settings to get the results you want.
Know when to say no.
We don’t all have the same camera. If you’re really serious about getting the best photos, invest in a high-quality camera. It won’t be as easy as just snapping the photos with your smartphone, but the quality will definitely be worth it. Also, consider buying a camera bag to keep everything safe. When you’re on the go, it’s easy to misplace your camera. Having a bag to keep it safe will help you avoid that.
Don’t stress about perfection.
We all struggle with the quality of images captured with our smartphones, but there are a few things you can do to improve your photos. The first thing you should do is make sure your camera is in good working order. If your camera isn’t working properly, your photos are going to be blurry, no matter how good your editing skills are.
High quality photos will require a few extra steps, but they are well worth it! If you want to take better photos on your iPhone, you’ll need to invest in a quality camera. While you can still get high quality photos with an iPhone, they won’t be as good as those taken with a DSLR or compact camera.
