Taking Good Pictures

I'm starting to write a series with a photographer. It's also summer, when many of us take more pictures. So, today I thought I'd share some photo tips.

In the evening on the beach, we often see people taking family photos. The sun is gentle, and there is less squinting.

















If you take pictures on your iPhone and want to balance your shot go to settings. Choose Camera and switch the Grid on. Then when you take your next picture, you can line it up with the grid before snapping.
















This turns into this.

















My kids taught me the next tip. But be sure you tap the screen of your smartphone before taking the picture. It'll help focus on your subject and improve lighting.



The last tip also comes from my kids. DON'T zoom in. It's better to get closer to your subject. Zooming can make your picture look blurry or grainy.

Whether you travel or stay home this summer, I hope you have a great time!
