Most Important iPhone Camera Feature to Improve Your Photography
 

Do what you can with what you have.

With the price of professional film cameras + lenses + necessary equipment nearing college room and board fees, what's the solution for someone who wants to become a professional photographer but can only afford to use his/her phone? 

iPhones have incredible cameras nowadays, and this one feature can help you capture in-motion shots, or any shot really, like a pro and in much less time:

Burst Mode.

Capture 10 photos in just 1 second. All you have to do is press and hold the camera button rather than tapping.

 

Here is my brother slide diving into a pool for example. I utilized burst mode and got these options for that split-second when he was airborne! Less time + more options = win, win.


Burst mode works in many other instances where you want to convey motion, like in the water below jetting into the river...

Malmö, Sweden
