To give your smartphone photos an added edge, why not download a photo editing app? With an editing app you can get really creative with your photos, from increasing the contrast to introduce brighter or darker lighting.
Lastly, try to never use the flash on your smart phone, it creates an artificial sense of light that tarnishes the end look of the photo – also, nobody likes those pesky, flash-induced red eyes!
A round-up of top tips
Before you go away on your trip, try and spend a little bit of your time practising photo composition and lighting. It might seem silly at first, but your eyes will notice the slightest of changes quicker than they would have before, making the end results even better.
Try to avoid taking photos of objects that are in the middle of the photo and use the Rule of Thirds. To do this, you must divide the photograph into three horizontal and three vertical parts, this will ensure that the end photo is perfectly balanced.
And finally, get creative! Have fun with photography by breaking all of these rules.
