Do you enjoy taking pictures of yourself and other people? Check these tips to create amazing portraits using only your smartphone and a camera app.

One of the most popular subjects on social media like Facebook and Twitter is photos. The stunning images of people around have a strong appeal to all of us.

Some people believe that good portraits can only be taken by experienced photographers. Actually, it’s not that hard and unreachable. You totally can create great portraits yourself with some help from an Android smartphone and a camera app.

If you are on your way to improve your skills in taking amazing portraits with your phone, here are some of the most useful tips that you shouldn’t miss at all. And to know more, just visit download apk from google play store.

Lighting is the vital key.

All the aspects of the lighting like the direction or the light intensity can lead to many considerable different outcomes for your pictures including portraits.

When taking pictures with a smartphone, it’s hard for you to control the light sources. Therefore, it’s even more important for you to make use of the lighting.

Keep in mind that you should let the strongest light source shine on the subject. However, it doesn’t have to necessarily shine the light in a direct way. You can adjust the direction of the light source to find the best results to your photos.

Pay attention to the setting

As portraits are about people, so you are allowed to make the pictures more stunning by adding some eye-catching backgrounds or epic natural scenes.

If you can go to remote areas or unique places, your pictures will look a lot more attractive, of course. However, if you are not a fan of exploring journeys, you can still make use of the settings around you. No matter what it is a street corner or an old railing on a bridge, it’s your creation that matters, not the place.

More information is available at download android app without google play.

Follow the Rule of Thirds

This is a classic rule used in both art and photography to create the balance and the reasonable arrangement.

Just imagine there are some lines separating your pictures into 9 grids. All you need to do is put your subject in just 3 of them, either horizontally or vertically. Some camera apps for Android devices even include a function that shows you the grid lines right on the screen. It’s never been easier to have a standard-meeting picture.

Use a good camera app

There are various camera apps available for Android users to choose if you are not satisfied with the pre-install one. They offer you a lot of useful features to help you with taking the high-quality photos. Also, most of the camera apps come with a friendly and easy-to-use interface.

Search them at our store and try them out and pick up the most suitable camera app for you.
