Monsoon is one season that many people associate with fun. While many like to play around in rains to enjoy the weather, there is another bunch of people who love capturing beauty using the cameras they have at their disposal. Interestingly, most of them click images using their smartphones as they are easily accessible and have better imaging capabilities to boast of. But do you know, you can click even better images if you’d keep these tips and tricks in mind.
Have the correct smartphone camera
It is very important to have the right phone camera to get the pictures right. Don’t be concerned just about the megapixels (MP) of your smartphone camera, because you actually need more than MP to get good pictures. There are plenty of other things that are also relevant such as having a good software. Take for instance the ASUS ZenFone 2 comes with PixelMaster Camera 2.0, a newer camera technology, which combines special algorithm, hardware and optical design to deliver better quality images in most scenarios including the rainy season.
Compose your shot
For good photography, having that perfect timing and composition is really important. Most people are usually in a hurry to take whatever they think is looking nice; pay a little attention to the composition and you’d notice the difference in your photos yourself.
Play with Light
The things with monsoon is that you may not get the best pictures as the lights may not be adequate. But if you want to click pictures that will get your some raving comments on Facebook/ Instagram, then the images ought to be clicked in good light.
So if you are wondering, what exactly is good light, it’s what will gives a scene shape, depth and makes things look interesting.
Look for light with some kind of direction and color. The same will help add some vibrancy in your images. There are also phones such as the Asus ZenFone 2 that come with ‘low light’ mode that can help you capture better images when the ambient light is not adequate.
Shoot picture in greyscale or sepia
