How to Ace Mobile Photography?
Gone are the days when you needed a fancy megapixel DSLR with STM or USM lens to click stunning pictures! All you need is to reach out to your pocket, pull out your mobile, plug in some mobile photography ideas and watch your photographic journey unfold.

3. Zoom is a no-no
To capture more detail, it is natural that you want to get closer to your subject. Never zoom as your
picture may come out grainy, blurry or pixelated. Instead, try to get closer to the subject so that you

4. Editing maketh picture perfect
Adobe Lightroom Mobile, Pixlr, Snapseed, Mattebox, VSCO – there are plenty of photo editing apps
that can make good images better. You can improve details to make a subject look blemish-free,
