There are different genres of photography which are adapting by different categories of photographer. Clicking macro photographs or macro photography is one of them.

Click Photo against the Sun
Photography has a various number of new things which you can experiment. One of the photography types I’m going to talk about now is one of the most creative and experimental photography. When you are doing photography, put your subject against the sun and click some photos. This is also called Silhouette photography. Silhouette photography is very creative. Not everyone can do silhouette photography amazingly. You need to have experience. But you need to choose the time of shooting very carefully. Shooting in golden hour is the best for shooting Silhouette photographs. Silhouette photographs are eye dazzler. It just simply dazzles your eyes. With your smartphone camera, you can do that nicely. Just don’t add any filters while shooting.
Use Glasses as Filter
There are some ways of making the photos creative even clicking by smartphone by using different elements. I know there are some built in filters on your smartphone. But you can hardlt find a filter which makes the photos give natural effect. There is a creative natural filter you can use while photography. Well, these are actually glasses. Sunglass can prove like a best natural filter thing to add on. Put a light color shade before your smart phone camera and click photos doing so. Your photos will come exceptionally great. On the other hand you can also use various color drinking glasses. Each color glass will give you different shades of photos. But you have to make sure that the glasses are clean enough. This is an amazing smartphone photography technique you can use to make the photos look creative. So try them out at once.
Use an Extra Lens
Lenses play very important role when it comes to photography. Photography cannot be creative until you use a good lens on that. People think that clicking photo from smartphone cannot be clean enough with good resolution. It requires additional pieces of lenses. Nowadays many people are photographing like professionals from mobile also. If you ask them you will get to know that they use additional lens. Mobile lenses are small and tiny and portable as well. Although those are small but you will get amazing resolution photos from those lenses. There are lots of benefits of using additional lenses. The best advantage is the photos will come out like professional photos as if you have taken photos with DSLR. These lenses are available at the market in cheaper price.
When you are clicking photos, there are vast scopes of clicking creative photographs by using phone also. Panorama is one of the most creative photography types from phone. Setting a wide angle to represent a physical space is named panorama. If you are an iPhone user, you will see that the panorama remains built in with the camera section to click pano shots. You do not have to put lots of effort to click panorama shots. Just turn on the panorama mode and move your body 306 degree angle with the phone camera. But make sure that your hands are not shaking. Or else the photos alignment will not remain straight.
Showing the photos from different perspectives itself make the photos look creative. People are bored seeing the photo from only one front angle. Angles can change your meaning of photographs. You can try clicking from a lower angle. The object looks really tall when you photograph the object from a lower angle. Get low with the phone’s camera and click your objects. Doing that, your main object will look tall and create a different perspective and creative.
Use Natural Lights
The importance of light has a great value for any sort of Photography. But, for Smartphone photography a natural light is said to be an Ace of spades. Natural light exposes the actual color of the whole scenery that will get photographed. Photos with natural will have bright color contrast and perfect sharpness. This makes the photograph more attractive and eye catching. For that reason use natural light like sunlight as a source of light in your photography to make the images look Professional.
Use of Proper Background
Background helps you to show the subject in the foreground suitably. Not just Smartphone but even digital camera photos also need a suitable background to highlight the objects on the foreground. The first thing a person or viewer will notice on the photograph is the background. Therefore the background should be attractive and should also sync with the theme of photography. In case of product photography using Smartphone I prefer the white or black background. White and black background helps client to see the subject properly. But for any other purpose specially using a Smartphone use a colorful and classy background to show the objects in the foreground properly.
Avoid Using Zoom
Compared to a Digital camera the image resolution of a Smartphone is less. Using Zoom will somewhat destroy the pixels making the image grainy. Further edit on it would be tough as it will make the image more pixilated. I prefer using external zoom lenses for shooting farther images but not the built in Smartphone camera lens. If you don’t have any external zoom lens then I suggest avoiding using zoom.
Go for the Rule of Thirds
Yes the rule of thirds. If you’ve been into the photography sector for at least half a year then you must have heard this word before. When I used to study about photography by reading different blogs and books I had also read this word. The concept of Rule of thirds used to haunt me at nights; it was quite complicated to be understood easily. I had to watch some videos to understand this concept of Photography. You can also check these videos for your betterment.
Still in short and easy language it can be explained that the rule of Thirds is a technique for capturing images with perfect composition. It keeps the color, sharpness, focus, Depth of the image perfectly synced together. To capture an image using rule of thirds you will need to imagine a grid of two vertical parallel lines intersecting two horizontal parallel lines making it look like a grid of six boxes on the screen of your Smartphone. The concept is quite simple to be honest all you need to do it to keep the subject to be focused on the points where these four lines intersect. Then click the capture button to get a well composed Photograph. Many Smartphone’s nowadays have built in six grid screen to make it easier for photographers to capture well composed images easily.
Use Leading Lines
A leading line is a set of lines that look symmetrical and leads the attention of the viewers to the main subject of the image. Leading lines are usually the structures of walls or properties that look like parallel lines like the image shown as an example. Take images of such lines to grab the attention of viewers instantly. This is an effective technique for getting your images noticed.
Shoot from Various Angles
Perspective is what makes you different from other Photographers. Most of the Photographers you know now have become famous because of their different perspective. They captured images which were different from others. Many amateur photographers capture images that are from their eye level. But can you imagine how would an image look like if it was from the eye level of an ant? It already feels great after imagining such an image. Try to capture such images which are of different perspective or from different angle. Don’t just capture images that are either horizontal or vertical capture from different angle and perspective. Capturing images from different angles using a Smartphone is easy as it is lighter and flexible than a heavy DSLR.
Smartphone has developed a lot recently mainly because of the competition in the market of Smartphone. Various companies are investing a lot on upgrading Phones and its camera; soon it will also give a great competition to professional mirror less camera too. The best Phones for Photography are iphone X series, Samsung S series, Mi and Poco phone and Honor. These are the phones that are suitable to click professional photographs like a DSLR.
