If you’re one of the proud owners of an iPhone then you don’t have to look for an even better camera. Despite Its simplicity, iPhone packs some pretty awesome tricks under the hood to help you get the most out of its amazing imaging capabilities.

Quit doing those lousy pointing and shooting and start cooking up some great pictures by the exploiting iPhone camera’s cool features with the following tips below:


Geo-Locate your images

By taking advantage of your phones geo-location capabilities, you’ll find it easier to view and organize your images, especially if you take pictures by the hundredths.

Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Tag your pictures to the place you took them by clicking on the following:

Settings-General-Location Services-Choose ‘on’ for ‘camera’

  1. All photos you take will be organized by location. You can check it by following these steps:

Photos-Camera Roll-Search for ‘Places’ at the bottom

  1. Hit ‘Places’ to show you a map with red points that highlight the location of every picture you took.  Hitting each point shows the number of images tagged in that location and allows you to see the images themselves.

Keep it from shakin’
Keeping camera phones from shaking has been a real issue ever since, and the iPhone continues the tradition. Since you have to touch the screen to take a picture, there’s a huge tendency for camera movement while taking the shot.

Perhaps the only way to solve this is by pressing and holding the camera button as you compose your shot and if you’re satisfied, release it gently at the immediate point you want to capture. Doing this right decreases he tendency for image blurring due to shakes.

Zoom it!

iPhone’s point and shoot capability is pretty good for the average but there is actually a technique to take even better photos. Here’s how:

Focus by tapping anywhere on the screen and a blue square pops up on the focused area. The insides if the square automatically adjusts the exposure as well as the white balance on that area.

See the slider bar below the box? That’s a digital zoom not an optical zoom, the further you digital zoom, the lesser quality you’ll get for the image. The solution? Just move closer to your object.
