In advance to the launching of the new iPhone 12 Pro Max of Apple, Apple has provided a celebrity photographer and trusts the film industry insider, Greg Williams, with an iPhone 12 Pro Max just to test on how high the capability of the smartphone could be.
Whenever he does not shoot in the rich and famous backstage at such events like BAFTA or the Oscars, Williams has in offer a Candid Photography Course on a website called Skillsfaster, while having the intention of giving people good skills on taking good and beautiful photos in any kind of situation at anytime regardless of what kit they have holding for use, especially with the iPhone 12 Pro Max, according to pocket-lint.
From the fresh shoot he had with the British star Gemma Arterton, he has provided us with good tips for photography using mobile phones.
The list below contains good tips from him for taking better photos, whether it would be using a new iPhone or not even having one:
- The best camera to put to use would be the one the users have along with them.
- Keep in pause for a certain period of time for the sake of lighting, how it falls on the subject and how it could be improved by what movement and position the camera or subject should be in. When lighting has been brought into consideration by the user, they are actually thinking like a photographer already.
- Best to not be lazy at all. Move to the best, most proper position.. Majority of the people who take pictures actually take them from the position they just happened to be in.
- Learn, understand, and practice the usage of exposure function of the camera/smartphone of/like the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Most of them actually have the exposure functionality that have a slide control which could be locked. Make the best use of it.
- Give thought on the story or caption to convey from the picture and use all the tools there is for the expression of that story in just one frame; composition, exposure, focus, and having to direct the subject where it/they would necessarily be.
- Rather record the life of self that has opposed to just the “best life.” Photography has been thought of creating and cherishing memories that would be wanted to look back and be nostalgic on what happened at that event or that moment.
- Edit the photo with the heart, not the head. Do not even try to edit the photo that has been attempted to be taken.
- Edit the photos that have been taken and select the best moments that give off the feeling of authenticity since they happen to be the pictures believed to be standing at the test of time.
