Almost everyone now carries a camera via their smartphone. These gadgets keep on improving to match users’ needs and leverage new technologies, packing in better specs and delivering high-quality images.
Case in point: the vivo Y22s. It guarantees supreme photography with its 50MP Super Night main camera, 2MP macro camera and 8MP front camera.
You’ve got the tool, but how about your skills? Do they match your high-tech camera phone? If you want to take more stunning snapshots with your mobile phone, here are a few tips and tricks.
Start with a clean lens
This may seem to be a topmost concern, but it is easily one of the things most people don’t remember to do. Many ignore and fail to remove the dust, dirt and smudges that accumulate on their camera phone, in particular the camera area.
So make it a habit to clean your lens before a shoot. You’ll be amazed how a quick wipe could produce crystal clear images.
Let there be natural light
Light is one of the most vital factors for any picture to look good, and natural light yields the best results. Try not to depend on flash too much. Photos taken with natural lighting look clean, and those photos taken during the golden hour look divine because of the hues and the soft, flattering effect.
If you need to take pictures in low-light conditions or at night, vivo Y22s’ Super Night camera comes in handy. It utilizes a large sensor that gathers light like a professional camera, delivering industry-leading 50MP high-definition images every time. You can most certainly relive the most significant and remarkable moments through photos with full vivid details. Meanwhile, the 2MP macro camera highlights tiny and exciting gems hidden from the naked eye with a focus as close as 4cm.
On the flip side of the smartphone, the 8MP front camera shows your vibrant self no matter how bright or dim the surrounding may be. The Super Night Selfie uses noise reduction technology and a selfie soft light band to generate a gentle light to yield a fresh-looking selfie photo even after a long day at work.
Keep the focus
Because of technological advancements, mobile phone cameras can now take a hint at what you want to photograph. They can smartly recognize faces and other main subjects in clear scenes.
In more complex or less-than-ideal situations, however, a simple tap on the screen on the point where you want the camera to focus can be done to avoid blurry shots and get a sharp result. Making smartphone photography easier and more professional looking, the vivo Y22s is also equipped with Bokeh camera feature to capture the subject’s depth. When mastered, this trick can bring more life to photos and deliver a realistic image as seen by the naked eyes.
Get creative with your composition
Follow the rule of thirds and try to steer clear of placing your subject right at the center. Imagine breaking an image down into thirds — both horizontally and vertically: basically nine even squares. Place the subject(s) at the intersections or along the lines of your photo to create a more balanced and fascinating composition.
Also, symmetry often does wonders and makes pictures more interesting. Using a natural frame, like a window, a doorway or an arch around your subject is also aesthetically pleasing. For panoramic shots, straighten the horizon by turning on your camera grid to display a set of lines across the screen.
Experiment and edit your images
Getting good pictures with your phone doesn’t start and end with your camera. You can also utilize photo editing apps to tweak your shots as you please. Thankfully, the vivo Y22S features a Multi-Style Portrait mode for both the rear and front cameras. This is specifically designed to include face beauty and bokeh, among many styles.
For the rear camera, you may choose from natural, vintage, northern lands, fashion, summer party, Japanese style, monochrome, silver salt and wet settings. For the front camera, fresh, texture, 1980s, rococo, gray, film, holiday, Kyoto cherry and Tokyo style are available to use.
Take unlimited shots and pick the best later
Some of these guidelines are unbelievably basic and some techniques may need more time to get used to. The key to making all these work perfectly is to practice. Take as many photos as you can. Study the results and take notes on how they can be improved.
The vivo Y22s lets you capture and store as many images with up to 16GB Dynamic RAM and 128GB memory with 1TB expansion. There’s no need to worry anymore about great pics going to waste.
Give yourself time to master these tricks and you’d find yourself taking your smartphone photography notches higher in no time. Keep practicing and refining your photograph skills with the vivo Y22s, featuring 5000mAh battery and 18W FastCharge that ensure you have all the power you need.
