What is Tech? How to Improve the Appearance of Your Smartphone Photos

Most of us never touch the settings of our smartphone cameras, we just point and click. It works well, but these tips and tricks you’ll need to try will make your photos and videos look more professional.

On iPhones, photos taken in portrait mode rival those of DSLR cameras. Built-in filters for natural, vivid, warm and a few others but to shoot like the pro takes, hit the “f”. This allows you to blur the background like you can with a professional camera and lens. Use the slider to select how blurry the background is so the subject stands out.

The “F-Stop” controls the aperture of the camera. You’ll find the setting when you open the camera in portrait mode, at the top right of the camera screen. Play with it. You’ll be amazed at how blur (also known as bokeh) will make your photos pop.

If you have an iPhone XS or newer, you can adjust the blur after taking the photo. And if it’s an iPhone 13, you get some of the same tools for video using Cinematic Mode.

Hate taking selfies to see everything upside down? We see them all the time where people are holding a product or wearing a T-shirt with a logo on it. You can change the setting to make it look like someone else took your photo with the rear camera.

In the settings under the camera, turn off the mirror’s front camera. Now when you take a selfie, it’s not going to be upside down, everything is going to look like it’s supposed to.

How many times do you miss recording a video of something amazing because you can’t take out the phone and open the app in time? On a locked screen, press and hold the camera app button. It will open to take a photo, but firmly press the shutter button to start recording video.

There is no need to swipe to find the video option.

There is only one downside to using quick check-in. Video is not shot at the highest video settings.

Sometimes you might want to take someone’s photo with something high in the background, like a building or some trees. If you don’t have a wide angle lens, you can still get the shot you want.

Switch from camera or photo mode to “Pano”. This is often used for taking wide landscape shots. Hold the camera horizontally, press the shutter button and follow the up arrow while taking or recording the photo. The iPhone will assemble the photo frame, allowing you to capture everything until you press the shutter button again.

It’s a camera trick that not many people know about.

If you have an iPhone, Apple holds annual Photo on iPhone photo contests, you can find this information on apple.com. With some free lessons on how to take better photos and videos.

I am not mentioning similar tricks with Android OS because Android phones are different from each other.

Samsung phones have different features than Pixel phones. So play around with the camera settings and visit your phone’s website to see what features are available that you might not be using.
