Whether you are in the market for a photographer or not, we can all agree that pictures are important!
Right now you’re isolating with your family, and I’m sure that’s made for some cute (and maybe crazy) photo ops.
Since social media is our lifeline right now, I thought I’d give you some quick tips on how to elevate those phone photos! Whether you’re an instagram lover, or just want to post on Facebook for family – these tricks can up your smartphone photo game.
And hey, maybe this’ll inspire you to pick up a new hobby!
Experiment with the different settings and learn what everything does. Knowledge is power!
This hack CHANGED THE GAME. If you have fur babies or kids who won’t sit still – hold onto your hats.
Light is one of the most important parts of taking a great image. It can make or break the whole thing! Knowing about how to use it to your advantage can help you whether you’re at home, or out for a walk.
These are just a few adjustments you can make and are basic photography skills that you can carry with you in your pocket!
I’ll let you in on a secret – I still edit most of my phone photos, especially if I plan on posting them on my feed!
Consistency is something I’m a big fan of, and it’s also aesthetically pleasing to your followers. So being able to streamline my editing style through an app has been a life saver!
I personally use the Adobe Lightroom Editor mobile app. It’s free, and very simple to learn. Plus you can save any presets you find and like on it, or create your own!
This photo I took on my iPhone X and edited it exclusively in lightroom! It took me all of 5 minutes to upload, edit, and post this. (We love a quick and easy app!)
We all can’t take the time to learn precise editing or have the skills of a professional editor – but we can support a business or individual who is and get amazing downloadable presets to use!
Here’s a couple of my faves:
Light and airy lover? Try lightandairyphotog (Annamarie and Caroline are amazing!) on instagram. You can visit their website for their presets here.
Maybe you like warm, film like photos? Check out Aubree Belle! You can see her presets here.
Or play around and create your own! You can save a preset at any time on the mobile app by pressing the three dots and selecting “Save as Preset” – give it a cute name and viola! You’re on your way to being the coolest mama, influencer, dog parent, or whoever you dream of being on instagram!
