Shooting Tips (Extended)
- Steady your shot by bracing your elbows tight into your body and hold the phone in front of you with both hands or by resting your elbows on something sturdy
- Turn on ‘Airplane Mode’ to avoid interruptions from pesky Facebook friends while channeling your inner ‘Abrams’
- Avoid shooting with bright light on the edge of the frame or near the edges of your shot. iPhone 5 shutterbugs find this to be the most likely culprit of ‘purple haze’ and is just a good general film/shooting tip
- Tap a darkened area of your shot to balance the levels before shooting. iPhone auto-balances based on what you tap in the frame
- If you want to retain focus of a subject throughout a continuous shot, tap and hold the subject in the frame to auto-lock focus on that subject/item/person
