I take almost every photo of my social media with my cell phone. I learned about photography with the manual camera a few years ago. I remember that I worked for a whole year to be able to buy my first professional camera. I admit that I don’t use the manual camera as much as before, I take my everyday photos with my iphone 6s.
Now, a good photo entails several factors. Such as; lighting, the composition of the objects and the device you use. Yet, there are tools that will help you achieve better photos. Today I want to share 4 gadgets that will make mobile photography much easier and fun.
You will ask yourself; "But if I don't do "selfies", why I need one?. A selfie stick can be super useful when you're taking phone photography with an angle from above. To make the famous "flatlay" photos, you can use the selfie stick as a tripod. Place the stick on a deep surface where it stands by itself. Then, adjusts the camera of the cell phone in a position parallel to the floor. Use the camera timer so it has better stability and the photos don't get blurry.
Reflectors help you to increase or decrease light in an image. do you ever try to make a photo of something and on one side it looks super bright and the other super dark? If you want the lighting to appear even in your phone photography you must use a reflector. Place it on the darker side, toward the light source so it bounces. Look at this "mini size" model that is perfect for carrying it in your bag.
