Almost all of the modern smartphones can now take care of  including this HDR feature in camera app, so look for the option in the camera option. HDR is good for situations in which there is a large contrast in light. HDR allows you to take impressive photos even in low lighting conditions. A HDR image has much quality and clarity as compared to the normal ones.

#9. Take care of ISO ๐Ÿ“ท

It seems like some mysterious professional photography term, but it’s really easy concept. The term ISO simply determines the sensitivity of your camera sensor. The lower the ISO, the less light your camera can capture.

As you start increasing the ISO, your photos will become more grainy, but you will be able to capture brighter images.
Many phones now have manual camera mode built in, but those who don’t enjoy such features can simply look for another camera app with a manual mode.
