‘From my experience in iPhone photography , my tips are:

1 – Never be afraid to try new things such as different angles;

2- Never use zoom in your phone as I think the zoom takes away your picture quality;

3 – Use both hands or a tripod when taking shots;

4 – Take the time to learn how to lock AE/AF for proper exposures; AE/AF can be turned on by tapping on the screen where you want to focus on / expose for, after that, hold down until the box bounces twice ! `if you haven’t tried it, you should ! It will make a difference in your pictures!

5 – Always look for the best light you can possible have;

6 – If using Instagram don’t use their filters;

7 – I have used many apps, as I love the artsy mood that I can get with filters. After discovering Hipstagram , my iPhone photography world became much easy and prettier ! You get amazing artsy results with it without having to do a lot of editing. The app comes with a ‘shake and take’ feature that is fabulous!’

8 – I also bought a 20X telephoto lens that works very well! I bought mine online and the price varies. I found a good price for it on EBay . The model I got is IB-T200. Magnification 800M size 44mm x160
