10 Tips for Taking Better Camera Phone Pictures

RISMEDIA, Nov. 1, 2008-Camera phones are increasingly becoming the picture-taking device of choice. According to a recently published study, about one in 5 consumers already use a camera phone as their primary camera.

Mark Asnes, vice president and COO of Wireless Zone, shares some wireless wisdom that can help you take camera phone pictures like a pro.

1. Good lighting is key. The ideal is natural light, but you can still get good results inside by turning on a few lights.

2. Adjust the white balance. Select your setting based on the type of lighting. If the lighting is mixed, stick with the auto setting.

3. Just say no to digital zoom. The picture quality will be reduced drastically. Optical zoom is ok if your phone has it.

4. Get ready for your close up. In place of digital zoom, get the camera phone closer to whatever you’re taking a picture of.

5. Stay very, very still. To prevent blurring, hold the camera phone with both hands and brace your arms against your sides or lean your elbows on a stable object.

6. Get accustomed to the shutter lag. For better timing, get a feel for how long it takes between the moment you press the button and the moment the picture is captured.

7. Don’t get trigger-happy with the delete button. An image that looks grainy on your phone could look just fine on your computer screen.

8. A clean lens takes clean pictures. Use a glasses cleaning cloth to avoid scratching the lens.

9. Turn up the resolution unless the sole purpose is for picture messaging.

10. If at first you don’t succeed…just keep experimenting with different angles, lighting and settings.

“Camera phones have improved significantly in quality over the years. Increased megapixels, better lenses and higher capacity storage are now available to consumers,” said Asnes. “Finding the best camera phone for your needs can be a daunting task, so it’s best to seek expert advice.”
