How To Take Better Pictures At Night With Your Smartphone by NaijaTechGuy(m): 6:37am On Aug 17, 2017
I'll be frank with you, Night pictures are actually very amazing if you know how to take them. It could be a selfie or a group picture.
It takes a good phone with a very impressive camera to take high quality pictures at night but sometimes there are errors that make the image seem blurry. In this post, I'll be giving you 7 tips on how to take better pictures at night with your smartphone.


1. Turn On HDR



HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. This feature helps to recognize different light intensities inside the frame and then dynamically balances the whole output. In low light scenes, this feature helps to take better shots.


#2 .ISO



It's quite possible you've seen this in your camera app but you don't know what it does.
By setting the level of this feature, the sensitivity of the camera sensor increases or decreases so it tends to capture more or less light. Try to increase the value of ISO to increase the amount of light capture and details in low light conditions.


#3. LED Flash Light



This hardware supports the camera in low light conditions. However, in most cases, the light from the bad camera flashes of smartphones interacts with the photo clarity. Keeping the flash turned off should produce better results unless the place is entirely dark.


#4.Shutter Speed



The speed the camera takes the picture with is also a really important factor. The more time the camera takes to capture the images the more will details will be captured and the light intensity will also be generally good.


#5. A Good Camera App
There are different camera apps and they process images differently and also they detect the images in varying ways. Try to use the best camera app on your phone for night photography and it could actually help you transform your shots into great ones.


#6. Use Additional Gadgets



Small OTG flashes could actually help intensify the quality of the default camera hardware by producing great image results. There are portable flashes, Lights ,OTG dispersers and more accessories and gadgets available for smartphones.


#7.Image Editing
This should be the last resort but believe me this actually works. Sometimes the camera of some devices capture good details in low light conditions but due to low image processing technology, those details may not come out as sharp images. The image editing here helps a lot to process the details from the images clicked in low light conditions. I recommend ToolWiz Photos for photo editing.

All these won't help you take better picture. The higher the ISO, the higher the image noise and phone cameras have nasty tiny sensor. If you use a slower shutter speed, then you image is gonna experience that annoying motion blur. I doubt if you even know how HDR works. HDR takes three different images at different exposures and combines them together to form a single image with high dynamic range. Phone cameras and night photography = IPOB vs Arewa.

I think you should turn off the flash when taking a selfie.. If it's actually that bright. I think the flash comes on at the wrong time that's why it's just too bright. Try resetting your camera to its default settings and see of it works or use another camera app.
