Different tips for taking good photos
Everyone has a smartphone these days. This makes it possible to take a photo or video at any time and share it with the world. This blog is about handy tips for taking the best photos or videos with your smartphone and what tools you can use for this.
Provide good light
It is important that you make good use of the light around you with a telephone. Some phones nowadays have functions to take good photos in the dark, but photos during the day often get a bit nicer. The more light there is, the greater the chance that the photo will also succeed. Make sure that the light comes from your back, with backlight you get pretty dark photos again.
It is of course very tempting to take a photo in the evening with a flash. To make a quick photo at a party, this is certainly not a problem, but try to avoid this for good photos. A flash on a smartphone is really just a bright lamp that doesn't reach that far and mainly causes red eyes. If it is still dark, use a small flashlight to shine. Better yet: take the photo with good natural light.
Stabilize the smartphone
Nothing is as annoying as a moving photo. Therefore always try to hold your phone with two hands and hold your elbows against your stomach. You can also use handy tools to keep the phone stable during filming. Are you walking and would you like to record a smooth video? Then use a Gimbal, a good Gimbal is that of Vizu. This Gimbal stabilizes the image of the video, so that it never looks moved again. In addition, this product has a number of useful functions, so that you can also take really cool photos. Put this on the tripod support and take photographer-worthy panorama photos and zoomed-out photos (this makes it seem like you are far away from something while you are actually fairly close). This can be very useful to get a picture of a building as a whole.
Don't zoom on your phone
It seems very tempting: zoom in on a photo for which you are just a bit too far away. Yet this is not the best idea. Your photo is digitally zoomed. This means that you actually cut the same photo and look closer. This makes your photo blurry faster. A simple tip to prevent this: just move closer and take the picture. This way you maintain the quality of the photo and your photo is a lot closer.
You can take beautiful photos on land, but what about the entire underwater world? All fish, the plants or the coral, all beautiful. You can use the waterproof cases from Vizu for this. These ensure that you can start taking photos and videos carefree under water. In addition, this case is shockproof, so you can take it with you in all kinds of extreme situations.
Use different apps
Finally: use different apps to post-edit your photos or videos. With the Gimbal from Vizu you can use the HFun app as standard. Heirdoor allows you to use various extra functions with your smartphone to shoot great content. For example, you can follow a person so that they remain central to the image. In addition to the Gimbal app, it is nice to use third-party apps to edit photos. For example, Pixaloop is a good app for adding motion in a photo (yes, really, give it a try). In addition, Lightroom, for example, works very well for adding effects and presets, to give every photo the same look and feel. Hopefully you will benefit from these tips. If you have shot great content with your smartphone, share it on instagram with #GoVizu, then we can enjoy it.
