These days, if you own a mobile phone (and 75% of the WORLD does) there is a decent chance you have the capacity to be a photographer. BUT you might not be a very good one and putting on an Instagram filter isn’t the only way to try and make your pictures better.While plenty of apps abound and we do love Instagram, getting a handle on the basic rules of composition and understanding some of the important camera functions built right in to your iPhone can help you create MUCH better images. And then they will look even cooler when you add a filter…or you might not even need one.
Here are some tips to start you on your journey, but keep in mind the most important thing to improving your photography is to go out and take pictures, go home study and critique them, and then repeat.
Legendary photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson said, “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
And that was long before the digital age, now that number is probably closer to 100,000. So get out there and shoot.
