Holiday Photos Part 1 - Smartphone

This blog is about the first of 3 videos by Michael Zelbel (See here) and gives some very useful tips on taking good images using a mobile (cell) phone.

Michael covers:
• why 'filling the frame' is a good idea
• why looking for an 's shape' in the body works well
• how to use a portable reflector to balance the light across the model
• why focusing on the eyes (particularly the nearest eye) leads to more attractive photos
• how the stabilise the smart phone (by bracing your body, for example)
