How to Take Great Shots Using Your Camera Phone


How many times has it happened to you that you’re in an extremely important family occasion and, of all things, you’ve forgotten to bring your digital camera. Before you start pulling your hair out of sheer frustration, remember that you still have a worthy alternative- your camera phone. You may be quick to conclude that it’s highly impossible to get quality shots with your camera phone, but you couldn’t be more wrong.

When taking photos using your trusty camera phone, it’s best to shoot your subjects at close range. Using whatever zoom features your phone has may compromise the quality of the picture.

Since most camera phones have no flash, be sure to take pictures under good lighting conditions.
To avoid camera shake, you can lean against a hard surface such as a wall as you shoot. Also, since camera shutter speeds are so slow, hold your camera still for a bit longer after you’ve taken the shot, to make sure that you don’t capture your subject as you are moving away from it.

pentax q10

My daughter has a new camera. But I have qualms if the same camera is needed in her photography class this year. For the meantime, she’s learning the parts and functions of the new gadget. It’s cute and very handy that you can easily place it inside your pocket. They’ve been asked to shoot certain subjects as part of their individual project this week. She’s been thinking of including hair wigs in the list of objects to shoot.

New Year, New Job

Some people I know look for a new job at the beginning of the year. Their decision stemmed from the belief that the New Year will bring them good luck in their endeavor. My niece for one will be working for a new employer next month. She quit her Technical Trainer Jobs because the offer of the new company is too tempting to resist. The basic salary is higher and there are a lot of other benefits compared to her former company. I heard she plans to buy a high-end camera as a gift to herself once she receives her first paycheck from her new job.
