How to take good photos with mobile phone

How to take good photos with mobile phone 2018 now everyone has a smart phone and can take photos at will. Although there are many photos taken, there are few people who can take good-looking photos. Besides the equipment, there are many skills for taking photos. How can a mobile phone take good-looking photos? Let's learn some shooting skills and composition from the editor.

1. Less is more

I always think this is one of the most classic laws of photography. For novices, understanding this sentence can quickly produce satisfactory works. As an old hand, understand this sentence can open the door to master. In the first contact with photography, the subject is not clear enough is a big problem, and through subtraction can quickly explain the subject clearly.

With a deep understanding of photography, a theme has become a basic skill, and how to frame a theme with the least screen elements is the threshold for improvement.

Of course, 'less' is just a way of expression in photography, which does not mean that pictures can only be' less', not 'more'. In fact, it is a great ability to arrange the complicated elements of pictures one by one.

Here's a chestnut:

What would you do if you saw this scene? If you take a picture like this, it's the passer-by's level. Click and wipe it.

Remember: less is more! It's too messy to shoot like this: sculpture, building, distant building, floor, green belt & hellip; if you master some composition rules, you may shoot like this:

This obviously shows a certain level of photography. From the perspective of overhead photography, the buildings, floors and other elements on the ground are directly excluded. Only sculptures, green belts and the sky are preserved. At the same time, in order to activate the picture, a person is added.

However, if you are a more mature photographer, you may shoot like this:

On the basis of the front, the green belt is excluded, and only the sky and sculpture are reserved.

The changing process is as follows: sculpture, sky, greenbelt, building, distant building, floor & rarr & rarr & rarr; sculpture, sky, greenbelt & rarr & rarr; sculpture, sky

And the change of the picture is just like that in the picture. Less is more.

So when you take pictures, you have to think about it: can you reduce it a little bit?

2. Lower it

What would you do in the face of such a scene?

If you make it like this, it's only fair. Stable horizontal line, three-part composition and extension line are acceptable. But if you are a mature photographer, you may shoot like this:

1. By lowering the position of the camera, the reflection of the water surface is stronger, thus forming a stronger symmetrical effect.

2. Through cutting, we can create wide-angle visual effect.

3. Electric cars are the finishing touch.

4. By turning it vertically, there is the effect that the electric vehicle is about to go to the cloud.

Another example is this scenario:

If it's done like this, it's still in line with the rules and regulations, and there's not much bright spot, but it seems that everyone can shoot it.

At this time, we adopt:

1. By lowering the camera position, the water surface occupies a larger position (perspective relationship), thus forming a stronger visual impact.

2. Create ripples on the water surface (in order to arouse the ripples, my feet are treading on the water continuously), so that the picture can form a more texture of the water surface.

3. By cutting, we can create better visual effect (16:9).

4. Through lens correction, create exaggerated visual effect.

5. By reducing the number of vehicles, the center of gravity of the picture is strengthened.

3. Rhythm and rhythm

What is rhythm and rhythm?

In short: orderly repetition under unified characteristics.

For example, this picture:

It has no rhythm. There is no 'uniform character' or 'orderly repetition'.

But that's how we get the rhythm.

Unified features: linework

Ordered repetition: gradient

You can also look for cross rhythms:

Another example is:

It's rhythmic, but it's not very rhythmic. We shoot from the bottom up:

So the sense of rhythm is stronger.

4. Get closer

Sometimes, we take the mobile phone closer, not only to take micro distance, or to virtualize the background (in fact, the ability to virtualize is very limited), but also to better observe the photographed object. You will find that there is such a big world!

This picture is taken by mobile phone. Who knows what it is?

5. Post processing

Post processing is a very important part of photography. Let me give you a simple example.

This is a rainstorm map. The original picture is as follows:

In fact, the processed image is closer to the visual effect at that time. It's really dark clouds that crush the city. The basic model for this kind of picture is: defogging -- gradient filter

First, we import the pictures (the software is the spicy repair APP):

Then use defogging:

As you can see, the details of the sky came out in a flash. Then we create a new radial gradient filter:

Note three values:

Exposure: we increase the exposure to get the details of the picture.

Highlight: the reason why we lower the highlight is to highlight the details of the sky.

Feathering: the higher the feathering value, the more natural the effect will be.

OK, after the above two steps, our adjustment is basically completed.


Before taking pictures, think before you act (when you practice a fixed thinking mode, you can react instantly):

1. Can the screen elements be a little less and a little less?

2. Is there any picture element that can form rhythm?

3. Can you lower it.

4. Is it possible to get closer.
