Lock Exposure and Focus for Better Photos on Your IPhone (and Other Tips)

Smartphones are by far the most popular cameras, but while they have improved a lot over the years, taking great photos with a smartphone is still slightly different from a traditional camera. MacRumors have compiled tips videos for iPhone, but they all apply to any smartphone camera. One little-known piece of advice is to learn how to lock exposure and focus.

If you’ve never used focus or exposure settings before, it’s pretty straightforward. Tap anywhere in the camera app to focus on that object. Tap and then slide your finger up or down to change the exposure. Once everything is set up the way you like it, touch the screen and hold your finger to lock both settings in place. This allows you to spend a little more time composing your image to get it right. When everything is ready, you can take a photo as usual. The video goes through a few other tips, including skipping the digital zoom in favor of getting closer to the subject, never using flash, and making full use of HDR.
