 Top Tips for taking Great Photos

1. Use gridlines to balance your shot, follow the rule of thirds- e.g. look at the last photo shown here.  

 

2. Zoom in, get close to improve detail. 

 

 

3. Try different viewpoints, e.g. a bird's eye view, reverse this, crouch low down for a child’s viewpoint. 

4. Avoid using the flash, take photos in natural light with the sun behind you.

 

 

5. Lose the filters but explore the editing tools.

  

6. Check the background, make sure there is nothing to spoil the shot.

 

 

 

7. Turn your phone sideways, hold it steady.

 

 

8. Clean the lens!

 

 

9. Have fun and don't take it too seriously
