Sally's Mobile Photography Tips


Look for the Light

Don't just rely on a scene for the shot. Look for rays of light, reflections, shadows and even shoot into the light for a little flare.

Shoot with your phone's camera

Use the regular camera on your phone rather then the camera within Instagram. Tap the screen where you want it to expose the image or zoom in closer if necessary.

Process using outside apps

Don't limit yourself to just the filters within Instagram. I use Snapseed mostly, as well as PicTapGo and Camera+ on occasion.
