No one wants blurred shots that are out of focus. You might want to stay still as you take your shot to avoid any blurred shots. This is also very relevant if your phone has a slow camera in which it takes a while to capture the picture. You should also stay still if you are in the HDR mode as this takes a few seconds longer to take the shot. Try using a cheap phone tripod in order to have a steady hand. You should also ask your subject to stay still for the photo. If you do not want a tripod, simply lay down your phone on a steady surface such as a wall or a desk and then take a timer shot.

Rule Of Thirds

This is a basic photography concept that has been introduced to everyone since time immemorial. You basically follow the grids on your phone in order to take a more dynamic shot. You can turn on the grids so that you will have guidelines. The grids will turn your phone into nine equal sections which you should then utilize for taking your photos. Your subject should touch at least three corners in the grid. It makes you photos more dynamic and it gives ample space for the viewer to appreciate the background as well as the features subject located in the foreground. Make sure to partner this with the focus feature for maximum effect. This is a simple trick yet it is highly effective.

It is better to take bursts photos than singular shots. This ensures that you have a higher chance of getting a good shot even while your subject is moving. You can activate the burst feature by pressing down on the shutter f your camera. It takes multiple photos and you can simply swipe through them to find the best one.

There are also other burst photos features that takes about ten pictures and then collates them into one good shot. The only downside to this matter is that it takes up a lot of phone storage space and it is quite taxing to swipe through all your outtakes in pursuit of a good one.
