Camera Hacks for iPhone

These camera hacks made me feel like a photographer 

If you're a Scooch user, you care about getting the most out of your phone. Today we're going to go over how to get the most out of your phone's camera. We're going to explain it in an iPhone-focused format, but the same principles apply to Android users. Here are three quick hacks:

1) Manually Set Focus and Exposure

Hate having blurry, dark photos all the time? You might think it's difficult to manually set your focus and exposure. In reality, it's super simple. To set the focus, tap the subject on the screen that you want in sharp focus. You'll see a yellow square appear once the area has been selected. You can adjust the exposure by swiping up or down on the slider next to the yellow square to get the perfect lighting.

2) Use Burst Mode for Fast-Paced Action Pictures

Getting the perfect photo of someone while they're moving can sometimes seem impossible. In reality, it only takes one swipe of the finger. If you hold down the shutter button and swipe to the left, you can take a burst of photos in quick succession, without having to press the shutter button multiple times. This will give you a better chance of getting the perfect photo.

3) Create Stunning Long Exposures with Live Photos

This hack will truly make you feel like a professional photographer. To do this, you need to find a subject that moves continuously, like a stream of water or some fast-moving traffic. Open the camera app and select the Live Photo button at the top of your screen - it looks like three little circles. Hold your phone very still and tap the shutter button. It will take a 3-second Live Photo. To change the Live Photo into a long exposure photo, find it in the Photos app, tap the "LIVE" button near the top, and select Long Exposure.

What's great about these hacks is that you can use them anywhere and anytime. No need to waste time editing your photos. We hope you found these hacks helpful!
