The smartphone has become the camera that everyone has on hand. And it is a very capable camera. But the following tips will help you take your photography to the next level.

Ditch the stock app

The stock photography app that comes with the iPhone and Android handsets it good, but choosing a better app will – usually – result in better photos.

For Android, an app worth taking a look at is Open Camera. Not only does this offer a wide range of pro features, it’s also free, open source, and feels no ads.

HDR can really help

Most photography apps have a feature called HDR – which stands for High Dynamic Range. It can help pull out detail in certain situations. For example:

  • Landscape photos
  • Low-light situations
  • Backlit scenes
  • Portraits taken in sunlight

Try it. Most apps offer the ability to take an HDR and a regular photo, so you can choose the best and learn when HDR helps and when it doesn’t.
