Every second there are more images being shot with a smartphone than with a DSLR. Did I hear a hurrah? You might as well because this proves something fundamental – photography is no longer limited to heavier, pricier and more “advanced” cameras.
The smartphone may lack many of the features that are commonplace on a DSLR or for that matter, even a point and shoot; longer optical zoom, optical viewfinder, manual exposure control, changeable lens and of course a larger sensor size. But what it lacks in terms of size and optical ability it more than makes up with convenience, portability and the ability to share images instantaneously.
In this article we’ll discuss a few smartphone shooting tips and benefits:
Ever wondered why some of your images have weird color tones? For example, why is your child’s portrait a weird orange instead of the light skin color you expect? Why does the skin color of the lovely model you just photographed have a despicable blue tone? These unwanted color tones are the result of your camera’s white balance adjustment unable to counter for the ambient light color. You’ll most likely experience this when shooting in artificial light, such as tungsten or florescent, as well as when shooting under the shade with natural light.
