Tips to take sharper photos

Image editing tools can be very effective at what they do but they don’t work like magic. As photographers, we have a responsibility to ensure that our shots are sharp. These are some tips that I learned from a friend who is a professional photographer to take sharper photos.

Properly hold the phone/camera.

Shallow pictures can be caused by camera shake. You can hold the camera with both your hands and support yourself against something, such as a tree or wall. Then, do what you can to stay still. A tripod would be ideal, but it isn’t always possible.

Shutter speed

The correct shutter speed can make a big difference in the quality of your photos if you have a camera, and not a smartphone. Blurred photos are less likely to occur if the shutter speed is faster.

Aperture

You will need to increase your aperture if you are using a fast shutter speed. You can experiment to find the right balance between aperture and shutter speed for your style.

Image stabilization

Image stabilization is a feature that many newer cameras and standalone cameras have. It helps to reduce camera shake. You will have to experiment with this feature as there are compromises.

Focus

The focus can have a significant impact on blurred images. Autofocus is fantastic, but not perfect. If you can’t get the focus right away, give the camera another second. Then, take the shot.
