Are you a new parent or parent-to-be looking to capture and preserve all the beautiful baby stories that’ll soon come your way? First thing is first—do some research and invest in a smartphone with a high quality camera. By following general tips and using the latest photo apps, you can become a master mobile photographer in no time.
We start with some general photography tips. When snapping pictures, be sure to avoid direct sunlight and distracting backgrounds. Remember to stabilize your phone best as possible and wait for that “magic hour” at sunrise or sunset when a phone can capture great colors. You should then play around with great apps such as VSCOCam, Facetune and Over. These hot apps allow you to edit your shots, but try not to go overboard with editing and polishing. Telling a great story is more important than stylistic considerations.
Keep in mind that you’ll get one good photo for every ten that you take. Fortunately, if you hold down the + Volume button in iOS 7, it activates “Burst Mode,” which takes up to 10 photos a second. You’re likely to have at least one good photo with this!
