I’ve heard it said over and over again that the best camera is the one you have with you. Honestly, I couldn’t agree more. I have an amazing DSLR and yet I find that the majority of my pictures are taken with my iPhone. Unfortunately, our iPhones still struggle in a lot of ways that more advanced cameras don’t. One of those ways is the iPhone’s intolerance for low-light situations. If you’re sick of blurry, unclear images, then here are a few tips and tricks that have really helped me out. Here’s how to shoot clearer, better photos on your iPhone.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus and iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a selfie flash for illuminated pictures of your face. If you find yourself in a low-light area, but you absolutely must take a selfie photo, you can turn the flash on to snap a photo that isn’t too dark. You can also set your selfie flash to auto so that the camera decides when it should and shouldn’t be used. But if you find the auto setting isn’t always right, you can turn the selfie flash off on your iPhone too. Here’s how to turn the selfie flash on and off on your iPhone.

Depth of Field on the iPhone 7 Plus is a awesome feature meant to mimic professional shots of DSLR cameras. It looks good to us because it is natural to our eyes. Focus on an object or person in the room around you. Notice how their face is in full focus; now use your peripheral vision and notice that everything behind them is slightly blurry and out of focus. Depth of Field, also know as the bokeh effect, on iPhone 7 Plus makes any photo look more professional and crisp. Here’s how to use Depth of Field on iPhone 7 Plus.

In the photography world there’s something called "the rule of thirds." The iPhone’s camera grid helps you create a balanced composition that adheres to this rule of thirds by displaying a faint grid over the capture frame. You can turn on the camera grid on iPhone easily within settings. When I originally wrote this article, my iPhone camera grid was turned off. But I’ve kept my iPhone 7’s camera grid on since. When taking photos, the rule of thirds can be applied with or without a grid, but the camera grid makes it easier to see if your horizon lines and subjects are placed at the proper intersections for optimal balance in the shot. We’ll talk a little bit more about what the rule of thirds is and then jump into how to get a grid on your iPhone’s camera.

Did you know you can record slow-motion videos on your iPhone? No slow-motion app is needed, you can use the Slo-Mo setting in your iPhone's native Camera app. Recording slow-motion video on iPhone is a great way to get a shot that would have otherwise gone by too quickly or to just get a great laugh watching and re-watching your slo-mo videos (pets and kids are the funniest slo-mo subjects.)  Depending on which iPhone model you're using, you can record slow-motion video at 120 or 240 fps (frames per second.)

Panorama Mode in the iPhone Camera app is an awesome way to capture the full shot. Instead of being limited to the edges of your screen, Panorama mode allows you to move your phone and capture a wider shot. Your phone then stitches the multiple shots into one long, beautiful image. Panorama mode is particularly perfect for taking photos of landscapes or city horizons. However, you may want to switch what direction Panorama mode captures in. Turns out, it’s easy to do. Here’s how to switch directions in Panorama Mode.

Apple introduced the Live Photo feature with the iPhone 6S, and it's still a fun and popular feature of the native iPhone Camera app. Unless you've unselected Live Photo settings in the Camera Settings, the Live Photo function is on by default when you open the Camera app, so you need to turn off Live Photo if you want a traditional still shot. Sometimes, though, we all forget to turn off Live Photo; now what? No worries, you can delete the Live Photo version of your picture and keep the still photo.

When you capture an image with your iPhone, the camera's autofocus (AF) and auto exposure (AE) features will automatically determine the best focus position for you and the best exposure for that area of focus. (Exposure determines how light or dark your image will be.) Alternatively, you can manually designate a different area of focus (and adjust the exposure of the image) by tapping on the area you prefer on your iPhone's screen. The iPhone's camera AE/AF Lock feature allows you to lock the focus and exposure settings you've selected so you don't have to reset them between each shot.

What does HDR mean and why would I want to use HDR photography on my iPhone? HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and an HDR photo is created by balancing the shadows and highlights of an image so that neither is being favored or ignored. Basically, HDR on the iPhone is done by combining three different exposures into a single shot. HDR has been around for a long time on the iPhone, so you won't need an HDR camera or a special app if you have an older iPhone 4, iPhone 5, the iPhone 6, the latest iPhone 8, an iPhone X, or any of the models in between. We’ll go over what HDR means, why and when to use HDR photography, as well as how to use HDR on your iPhone. HDR mode on your iPhone camera makes a big difference in the right situations, such as when taking a photo of land and sky. So let’s get to it; here’s everything you need to know about what HDR is and how to use it on your iPhone to take awesome pictures.
