Here are some more tips and tricks which I personally use to take your smartphone Photography to the next level.
1. Horizon Lines When taking pictures of landscapes, always ensure that the Horizon Line is properly horizontal. This will make sure that the image is much more realistic. Try to capture the horizon line correctly in camera. A crooked horizon can work in some scenes however, but I often found that having the horizon perfectly horizontal makes the scene much more powerful.

Tips and Tricks for Product Photography on a budget

If you are like me, you probably do not have the deepest pockets to spend on expensive lighting equipment and additional camera accessories aside from your camera gear. Here are some tips and tricks I have experimented with my own projects on how to help you get into Product Photography on a budget.
1. Use Natural Light
Natural light is the cheapest way to light your product. Depending on the time of the day, the light can cast very long shadows or can be quite soft and diffused. It can be the No. 01 light source for your image.
