It is no secret that the quality of photography will determine the output you get through editing. This is to say, the process of professional picture editing alone will not always produce the best possible outputs. For these results, photography has to complement editing. Now, let us discuss the procedures that are considered the most effective in photography for social media, and that will contribute to the best outputs through editing.
Utilize Landscape Mode
Put your camera on landscape mode when taking photographs to upload on social media. Landscape videos and pictures are fit for social networking websites. It is particularly the case when you utilize a smartphone for photography; in this case, zooming and cropping the frame is extremely complex. In the event you do not perform anything else, then confirm that the photos for your social circles are in landscape orientation. This way, cropping the photographs will be easier for editors.
Be as near as the object as possible when photographing with your smartphone. Zooming will make the photograph unclear or grainy, so do it only with a professional camera. Unfortunately, we all try to zoom as much as possible to get a close-up of the subject.
Utilize ‘Rule Of Thirds’
This rule is about splitting a photograph in the mind with two apiece vertical lines and horizontal lines. It will create a grid over the photo, which exists in the mind and that comprises nine boxes. The box in the middle of the frame made up of two apiece vertical and horizontal lines, is the guide for putting a focal point or two in it. When photographing using an Apple iPhone, these lines should show in its camera application by default.
Utilize Natural Lighting
You can make up for the fact that a smartphone is not great in terms of lighting by photographing adjacent to daylight. A good thing to do is to head outdoors for photography. In the event, you must photograph inside a building, however, do it close to a window. That said, keep in mind that photographing when the opening is in the background will make the output excessively bright. Rather, photograph the object by standing in front of the window and placing that item away to an angle. Using the flash while you are at it will result in any shadow or yellow light over that object, so avoid it.
Utilize A Creative Yet Simple Backdrop
The backdrop is also important in photography. Try not to have any intersection made by doors, windows, or anything that seams ruin your composition. Of course, there is the option to fix the flaws during post-processing, but try to do it right the first time to save money on professional photo editing service.
