Photography 101: How to take better phone pictures in the dark

Photo May 23  6 39 17 PM

I used technique 1 to take this iphone picture.

Have you ever tried to take phone pictures at a dark party or event, only to get frustrated at the flash and how long it takes? Most night pictures I see taken with phones leave a little to be desired. Here are some tips to help you make the best of low-light situations with your phone camera.

Technique 1- Looking for light

1. Find ANY source of light
2. Have subjects face the light
3. Turn the flash off
4. The subjects need to hold REALLY still.
5. Take the picture

Technique # 2- Using someone else's flashlight.

1. Have an assistant turn their FLASHLIGHT on their phone on. (this is not the phone that will take the picture)
2. Have your assistant hold the flashlight above your subject's head at about a 45 degree angle. 3. Make the light look good on the person's face. You can create shadows if you want for a more dramatic look, or just hold the "flashlight" more evenly toward the front of the face for a flatter lighting situation.
3. Make sure your own flash on your phone is off, and take the picture using the light from the other person's phone.

But always remember, a less-than-perfect picture is better than no picture to capture a moment that is special to you. :) Get out and take some pictures!
