Who doesn’t like taking photos with their phones? We all do! Infact some people (like me) indulge in a lot of mobile photography! I’m sharing one with you today-

Mobile Photography Tip #12

Turn off your flash when taking photos with your phone. Flash in our mobile phones is basically LED light, and it can emit a strange hue onto your photographs. The LED light used as a flash is slow and often too bright. Unsightly red-eye and washed-out images are common when using the flash function. So avoid using the flash and instead use natural light for taking photos.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your thought. A lot of phones these days come with special feature for capturing good quality photos in low light. Even my phone has it, I have also got the inbuilt flash. The former is quite useful, the latter one not so much. What smartphone are you using?

      1. for the last couple of years i had a samsung galaxy 7 which i really liked and i do like samsung phones as they do have great cameras. i just bought a google pixel 3XL and so far i have liked it as it also has a great camera and none of the bloat of apps the samsung has and the reviews were equal. having had several smartphones over the years, they all had flash but i learned early on the flash was to be used rarely if at all for the reasons you stated in your post. i push the limits of the camera in my phone all the time. sometimes with surprising results. all the photos i post i say which camera i am using to take the photo. keep an eye open for photos from the pixel 3 xl in the near future

  1. I loved the way you gave tips and showed a recent picture that was just taken on your phone. It is so easy to capture beauty especially with the updated technology that we have. It is all about the small things and you exactly explain that in this post.

  2. Beautiful image! Such a beautiful flower! I totally agree about about not using the camera flash on mobile phones. I do a lot of iPhone photography and the flash is super harsh! Instead, I use natural lighting and then make any further lighting adjustments in camera settings. It never occurred to me that the flash is an LED light, thanks for sharing!

  3. Neatly captured image and really helpful tip. It’s astonishing that a lot of majority of us carry very powerful cameras in our pocket in the form of mobile phones and pay very little attention on how to effectively use it. Nothing beats the good composition by mobile camera than bad composition with even costly DSLR. I am glad you are providing these tips.

    1. Thank you so much Praveen for your most kind words.
      Indeed, you’re spot on with the comparison between good composition by mobile vs bad one’s with DSLR. We can’t deny there’s difference between using a phone & using a professional camera for photography. But at the end of the day what really matters is quality of photos & not the tools used to capture the photos.
      Thanks again for sharing the lovely thought.
      Best wishes,
      Binita
