    1. Technical tips for iPhone

a) When you have ample of time for photographing your subjects, you would like to manually adjust your camera settings. While iPhone already comes with ample of functions in the camera, we suggest that you download a few third party manual camera applications for the camera to adjust the settings. A little change in ISO, shutter speed, white balance etc. can dramatically change the clarity of your photos.

b) The default camera mode of Apple offers different shooting modes like photo, square and panorama. Consider the end use of your photograph before you click. For example, if you want to publish the photo ultimately on Instagram, you can use the square mode instead of cropping the photo into a square afterwards.

c) You must have heard of the rule of thirds. In case you do know, it means that your subject should fall on one of the grid lines that divide the composition in nine equal parts. Fortunately in an iPhone, you can turn on the grids.

d) If you have a moving subject or your camera is moving, you can use the burst mode of the camera. You can use this mode to click several photos of people in action in micro-seconds.

e) If you want to click only one subject in focus, you can turn on the lock focus feature. This will not switch the focus from the main subject to the other things in vicinity.

  1. Make use of the shadow

You would need to wait for a sunny day to capture the shadows of your family members. Shadows add great interest to the photographs. Click photos from different angles to capture long and short shadows of the subjects.

You can also try clicking the picture of only shadows of your family in different poses. You will be amazed to see that even shadows can give you amazing photographs without people being engaged in them.


  1. Use natural light

If you are sitting indoors with your family, you can ask them to come near the window or the door. Turn off the indoor lights and click using bright sunny light.


  1. Click natural poses

Nothing is better than clicking natural poses of your family. Asking them to pose for you spoils the fun of photography.


  1. Capture their personality on a winter vacation

You can get some of the best clicks if you are out on a winter vacation. You can go out and get the best shots. If it is minus zero degrees outside, you will definitely prefer to stay at home but you can use Photo Pie’s winter backdrops in such a case. Custom backdrops give you an awesome background for breathtaking photographs without leaving the warmth of your house in winters.


  1. Do not zoom, crop it later

Try not to use the zoom of your iPhone camera. Click the whole picture and then you can crop it later as you wish. Using zoom gives poor quality images.
