Do you know about Portrait mode?
Portrait mode is a feature on the iPhone camera that allows you to take stunning, professional-looking photos of people. It uses advanced technology to create a blurred background effect, also known as bokeh, which makes the subject of the photo stand out. It is one of my very favorite modes to use when taking pictures of people, products, nature and more!

Lets talk about light!
Light is one of the most essential elements in photography. It is the foundation that shapes the mood and atmosphere of a photograph, and it can make or break an image. I personally am found of using natural light as much as possible. Sometimes that is not possible and alternatives must be utilized.
Here are a few reasons why light is so important in photography.
Light creates mood and atmosphere- The way light falls on a subject can create a wide range of moods and atmospheres. Soft, diffused light can create a peaceful and serene atmosphere, while harsh, direct light can create a dramatic and intense atmosphere. Understanding how to use light can help you create the mood and atmosphere you want in your photographs.
Light defines form and shape- Light helps to define the form and shape of a subject by creating highlights and shadows. These highlights and shadows add depth and dimension to an image, and they can help to bring a subject to life.
Light can be used to create contrast- Contrast is the difference in brightness between the lightest and darkest parts of an image. By using light creatively, you can create contrast and drama in your photographs, drawing the viewer's eye to the subject and making the image more striking.
Light brings out color- Light is essential for capturing color in an image. Without light, there would be no color in a photograph. Understanding how light affects color can help you to create more vibrant and dynamic images.
In conclusion, light is one of the most important elements in photography. Understanding how to use light can help you create the mood, atmosphere, and impact you want in your photographs. I highly recommend you try my 360 experiment to get a hands on learning experience of light in your pictures. If you are not sure what that is... message me and Ill send you a video explaining it!
Remember to experiment with different lighting conditions and techniques to improve your skills. And if you find these tips helpful please like/comment/share!
Do you know about Composition?
Composition refers to the way elements in a photo are arranged, and it's crucial to creating visually interesting and pleasing images. Here are some composition tips to help you take better photos with your iPhone. To start off though make sure you have your grid turned on. Do this by going into the phone settings, go to camera, in camera settings turn on grid. Once you have done this, check out these tips to try!
Use the Rule of Thirds: The rule of thirds is a composition technique that involves dividing your frame into thirds, both horizontally and vertically. This creates four points of intersection, which are where you should place the main elements of your photo. This creates a more balanced and visually pleasing composition.
Look for Leading Lines: Leading lines are lines within a photo that lead the viewer's eye through the image. This can be a road, a fence, or any other line that guides the eye through the photo. By including leading lines in your photos, you can create a sense of depth and movement.
Pay attention to Symmetry: Symmetry is when two or more elements in a photo are mirror images of each other. This can create a sense of balance and harmony in a photo. Symmetry can be found in many everyday scenes like reflections, building and nature.
Experiment with different Angles: Shooting from different angles can change the way a photo looks. For example, shooting from a low angle can make a subject look bigger and more powerful, while shooting from a high angle can make a subject look smaller and more vulnerable. Experiment with different angles to see how it changes the look of your photos.
Use the Grid on your iPhone: Many iPhones have a built-in grid that can help you compose your photos using the rule of thirds. To enable the grid, go to Settings > Camera and turn on the Grid option. This will help you to visually see the intersection points of the rule of thirds and use it in a more effective way.
By following these composition tips, you can take better photos with your iPhone. Remember to experiment and have fun!

First and foremost knowing what "style" YOU prefer will be key. Do you like bright and airy or dark and moody? Once you decide that pick a editing app. This app will be your go to always!! Play with the edit options available until you find one you love. Save it. And then use it on your images consistently.
For example... you go to an event and you take pictures. When you edit those pictures make sure you use that same edit on all of them. Right away this gives a more cohesive, professional feel to your images.
You can create a few different favorites edits that you use for different sets of images. Say one for your family adventures and one for nature pictures and one for business adventures.
Don't forget.. practice makes perfect!! This rings true in photography because as you shoot more you will get better at reading your light, angles, poses and composition.
