Came upon a website that shared how to take good pictures with just a camera phone.
1). Know your camera
Check the spec – make sure it can do what you want it to do
2). Always use the flash in poor light
No matter how poor the flash is!
3). Stand extremely still (hold your breath when taking pictures)
4). Get close to your subject
2 feet or so for maximum sharpness
5). Use the highest resolution possible
donâ€™t worry about the size fo your picture if itâ€™s quality you value
6). Avoid the digital zoom
Use optical by all means, but stay away from digital zooms
7). Use White Balance
Experiment with your phoneâ€™s options. Incandescent is good for poor visibility
8). Use Night mode
If your camera has a night mode setting, use it, even in cloudy rather than night conditions. Use it in combination with incandescent white balance setting for optimum quality
9). Use Spot photometry
Use it in conditions of uneven lighting – if you want to highlight the light areas more, focus on the light, but at the expense of the shadows. And vice versa, of course!
10). Make sure your lens is clean!
