Top 10 Apple iPhone Photography Tips For Beginners
1) Keeping your iPhone Lenses Clean is often overlooked, which can attract Lint and Finger Prints, resulting in Blurred Photos. We keep our Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max Cameras Clean with a MagicFiber Microfiber Cloth and a Lens Cleaning Pen.
2) Use and Why To Use Slow Shutter – Slow Shutter is often used in Nature Photography to Freeze Waterfalls and Smooth Ripples in Rivers, Lakes and Smooth Reflections. We use the Moment Pro Camera App, because it allows for Full Control of the Apple iPhone Camera Settings, for both Photography and Videography – Including Shutter Speed and ISO. Typically a Slow Shutter Speed of 1/2 to 2 Seconds is used. A Variable ND Filter is Recommended For Slow Shutter Photography.
3) Use a Tripod with iOS Remote Control – Keeping your Apple iPhone perfectly still when taking photos will greatly improve your focus and sharpness. Shutter Speeds can often drop below 1/60th of a second, resulting in blurry hand held photos. Don’t bump or shake the Apple iPhone while shooting. For TimeLapses and Slow Shutter Shots, such as Waterfalls, Lakes and Streams, always use a Tripod and an iOS Remote Control.
4) Use Grids For Level Horizons – There’s nothing worse than a Landscape Photography with a Crooked Horizon. To get the Best Level Horizons, turn on the Grid Option. We recommend the Rule of 3rd Grid and the Golden Ratio.
6) Use Manual Focus – Auto Focus takes an average focus of the entire image, but for sharper photos, use Manual Focus. Tap on the screen to focus on an area in the Foreground, Middle Ground or Background. Once focused, you can also manually adjust the exposure on the screen.
7) Check Apple iPhone Battery Level and Storage Space before leaving the Studio. Carry 10,000 mAh 20W USB-C Power Banks for Quick Recharging of the Apple iPhone.
8) Better Composition – Ever wonder why some photos look better than others? Composition is key! Try to use Grids and incorporate the Foreground, Midground and Background into your photos using the Rule of 3rds or the Golden Ratio.
9) Focus On Your Subject – What is the subject of your Photo? Use Leading Lines to help draw a person into your photograph towards the subject.
10) Aspect Ratios – If you know the Aspect Ratio for your final Photo, say a 10” x 8” Print for a Photography Contest, shoot in 5:4 Aspect Radio. This will aid in your Composition and the Rule of 3rds Grid will line up correctly, plus you won’t have to crop off the sides. Try using an Anamorphic Lens for a Wide Panorama Look.

Plants: Hummingbirds are attracted to a wide variety of flowers, mainly red and orange in color. We plant many hanging baskets of Red Fuchsias, which bloom all summer.
Hummingbird Feeders: We use and recommend the 12 oz. Aspects HummZinger HighView Hummingbird Feeder, which had no center bottle, making it easier to photograph hummingbirds. It is made from strong Polycarbonate, not cheap plastic (avoid cheap imitations). This High Quality Hummingbird Feeder is made in the USA and has a Lifetime Guarantee against defects or damage.
