YouMap can help you with this as well – our app is especially helpful for documenting your sightings, finding new spots to photograph, and even connecting with fellow photographers. In this article, we explore this topic more deeply. We invite you to read on!

Our Spring Pictures Tips and Tricks for iPhone Users

Before we explain how YouMap can help you find the perfect spots for spring pictures and record your adventures, let’s briefly go through some tips and tricks useful for taking photos with your iPhone. Many of them are really simple but can dramatically change the quality of your pictures. So, what should you know?

  • Activate Apple ProRAW – If you want the best resolution for the most detailed spring pictures, you have to activate Apple ProRaw – a function that utilizes more data to create the highest-quality photos!
  • Volume button = shutter – Many users are not aware of the fact that the volume button acts as a shutter in your iPhone camera. Using it this way will help you stabilize your pictures and eliminate blurriness.
  • Turn on the grid – No matter whether you are photographing botanical wonders, or city landscapes, composition is what makes the true difference between a great and an average photo. By turning on the grid, you can apply the “rule of thirds” used by professional photographers and place the subject matter in the left or right third of the frame, making your spring picture more captivating.
  • Swipe up for creative functions – There are quite a few options that can make your spring photography even more beautiful, and all you have to do is swipe up and choose one of them.
  • Consider third-party editing apps – Taking a spring picture is one thing, but even the best ones require some editing to look truly astonishing. Don’t rely just on your built-in editor – experiment with third-party editing apps for the best outcome!
