How to Take the Best Picture with Your iPhone 6s

iPhone 6s camera

Apple upgrades its iPhone collections everywhere. Each one comes with many new and special features. One of the changes that Apple almost never disappoints on is the camera. Each iPhone’s camera is better than the previous. The iPhone is known for its easy to manoeuvre user interface, and it is great for taking pictures. However there are many more things you can do with your iPhone 6s camera than just pointing and clicking. Here are some great tips for getting the best out of your camera and take even better quality pictures.

  • Swiping For Quick Access

We have all been in a situation where we were just a millisecond too late in capturing the perfect picture, and regretted it ever since. Well now you can forget about that regret. If you take a look at your home screen when it is locked it will look a little something like this:

Notice the tiny camera icon in the bottom right hand corner? If you need to quickly access your camera, simply swipe up from this icon and you will be in all camera mode. You might still miss that perfect shot, but this definitely gives you a much better chance at catching it.

But what if you are already doing something on your phone and you need to quickly switch to the camera? For this you can again simply swipe up, but there will be no camera icon this time. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen simply opens the control centre. There you will find your camera icon that will lead you straight to the photographic highway.

  • Use the Grid

The grid consists of two vertical and two horizontal lines. It breaks your screen up into nine squares and allows you to make better use of your compositional skills. It also has the added bonus of keeping the horizon level. To turn on your grid, simply go to settings, scroll to the ‘Photos and Camera’ section, and make sure that grid is set to ‘On’. And enjoy some very well composed selfies.

  • Capture Movement With Burst Mode

An incredibly useful tool for the iPhone is burst mode. This allows you to take multiple pictures in one succession with just one click. With the iPhone 6s you can expect to get as many as 10 photos per second. This is great for capturing sports shots, holiday snaps, or candid nature pictures.

To use burst mode you only have to hold your thumb or finger on the shutter button for as long as you wish to take pictures for, a few seconds or more.

  • Set Focus and Exposure

iPhones automatically set focus and exposure, and most of the time the job is satisfactory. But sometimes you can end up with a burry picture, which can be a real irritation.

To adjust the focus and exposure you simply tap whatever part of the picture you want to be most in focus. You can experiment in whatever way you like to get the best quality for your photography. In some cases you may find that the exposure is not quite right, and in these cases the exposure can be manually adjusted by sliding the little sun up or down beside the focus box.
