Interview with Adam Bronkhorst, author of the book SnApp Shots: How to Take Great Pictures with Smartphones and Apps
But if it’s not right try touching your screen on exactly where you want the exposure to be and the focus to be and you’d be surprised that a lot of phones then adjust it. So if you turn your subject right into the shade (so that their face is in shade but everything else is bright) if you touched on their face on the screen the camera would expose for the shadows.
And there’s a lot you can do with a photo after you take it.
Most photos could improve with a little bit of post-production. So there are various apps out there whether it’s built into the camera app or whether it’s a separate app for doing some post-production that could help improve your photo. Whether it’s just increasing the exposure afterwards or just de-saturating it slightly or straightening or rotating of the picture.
And to do that there are lots of apps but Adam recommends you start with 1 - Instagram.
I love it. It’s everything I wanted in an app – for shooting, editing and uploading. And those are the main 3 things you want to do with a photo but you can really so this with Instagram. And the fact that it’s a social network and people are on there and you get feedback on your images and it’s great.
