With more than 70 million photos posted to Instagram each day, you have to do everything you can to make your images stand out from the crowd and jump out at the viewer on their small screen. Mobile photo sharing begs for a special aesthetic, and the best photos will get noticed because of their bold simplicity. Do you sometimes find that your photos don’t look as good as the way you remember the scene? As photographers, we need to make it clear to viewers what they should be looking at through choices we make about composition, lighting and color.
So, let’s take a look at eleven techniques to help you compose stunning photos that will have maximum impact on the small screen of an iPhone.
It can be tempting to pack our images full of all kinds of interesting things, but having a minimal composition is a sure way to get your iPhone photos noticed on a small screen. Because we all see so many images every day, simple ones that use minimal compositions will usually get a lot of likes because they have a place for our eyes and brains to rest, and focus on a single subject.
For visually striking photos that will get people to stop scrolling and take notice, it’s usually best to simplify the image so that you can emphasize your main subject. Separating your main subject from the background is one of the best tricks to good photography. Before you take a photo, look at your subject and see if there’s anything behind it, like a distracting branch or pattern that will interfere with the shape of the subject. If there is, try changing your perspective by shooting from a higher or lower angle to help isolate the subject from the distracting background. Leading lines are an excellent way add visual interest to your photos, and this is especially true when it comes to small-screen images. Leading lines help draw the viewer’s eye to the main subject or point of interest, and create a sense of depth in the image. Lines also add boldness and clarity to a photo which will help get your photos noticed on a small screen. Standing at the bottom of a building and looking straight up often gives you a great opportunity to incorporate leading lines into your composition. The more space the shape takes up in the frame, the bigger the visual impact will be, so don’t be afraid to get up close and fill the frame with strong shapes. Look for any man-made or natural patterns, then experiment with the composition until you find the angle that works best. At first you may find it difficult to spot symmetrical compositions, but once you start looking you’ll notice them more often.
Don’t forget to look up as you might be missing out on an interesting symmetrical subject right above you. Glass is perfect for reflections, but all kinds of shiny surfaces will allow you to create symmetry wherever you are. A large section of emptiness in a frame is called negative space, and it’s a great choice for mobile photography because it can help create a simple, strong composition.
The space actually draws attention to your main subject as there’s nothing else in the frame competing for attention.
Try shooting in harsh light where you’re likely to get strong shadows, and use the shadows as part of your composition.
Conversely, you can use a single dominant color as a method for making your photo noticeable even when it’s small. Get rid of any extraneous details that aren’t important to the final image, like leaves on the ground, wires in the sky or distracting reflections on buildings. The shadows and silhouettes in this photo have a strong visual impact, but the parking meter in front of the people is an unnecessary distraction that doesn’t add anything to the composition.
Removing unnecessary elements will make your images stronger and your main subject stand out.


When you think you’re done editing, make sure you look at your photo as a small thumbnail in your camera roll. Having a strong thumbnail is a great way to get new people to notice your photography when it appears on the Explore page in Instagram.
Hopefully you now have a better understanding of why it’s important to have strong images with clear subjects, minimal compositions and a graphic quality that will stand out even when it’s just a tiny thumbnail. I’d love to have someone do a tutorial on how to take the average, everyday mom routine and shoot is well. I’m not sure how helpful, or reasonable, this suggestion may be to you, and others have said it before, but try to change the perspective from which the shot is taken. Hi I have a question I love all the tips givin above however you didn’t explain how to exactly resize a photo (mine being taken on iPhone 6) into the standard square size instagram limits you on, especially without loosing any strong detail.
Photographers don’t get noticed overnight, nor are they immediate shoo-ins into the industry. Entering contests and competitions will give you a chance to have your photographs critiqued, see what other aspiring photographers are doing and win awards or prizes that will help forward your career. By showing professional photographers your pictures, you are bound to get some helpful feedback concerning your work. Photography internships will give you the chance to expand your photography skills, gain valuable work experience and show off your skills. Blogs allow you to share your photos, write about your photography and let readers know more about you.
One of the fastest ways to get your photographs noticed is to put them on a social networking site, such as Facebook or MySpace. Joining a local art association will help increase your exposure, by meeting fellow photographers, attending photography events and networking in person. In order to get you photographs noticed by magazines, you will most likely have to contact them directly.
As a rule of thumb, aspiring photographers should focus on taking good pictures and perfecting their style and technique, before trying to get noticed as a professional.
Use the state Photography Schools links below to find online photography courses in your area. But even the largest mobile devices have screens that are only a few inches across, meaning that detail and subtlety can easily be lost.
That’s because our eyes and brains are great at focusing on what’s important in a scene, whereas a camera captures every detail, even the unimportant ones.
This is especially true for photos shared via iPhone apps like Instagram and VSCO Cam because the screens on the mobile devices we view them through are small. If your subject is dark, try to compose your shot so that there’s a light area behind it, or vice versa. Remember, you want the composition to be very clear and clean so that it will be easily seen, even when it’s on a small screen. Your eye can’t help but follow the lines from the foreground into the distance, especially if you use parallel lines to create a symmetrical composition like the one above. It’s usually best to have your lines starting at the bottom corners of the image so that the eye is drawn from the foreground into the distance. A photo that has a strong graphic composition is especially well suited to small-screen photography because the clarity of the shape works at any size. Our brains naturally notice patterns and repetition, so using them will help bring attention to your images. Look out for symmetry in architecture and nature, and compose your shot so that one side mirrors the other. Keep the line of symmetry perfectly central for the most impact.


Buildings are good places to find symmetry, but a straight road leading into the distance also works well. You can also create your own symmetry by placing your phone up against a reflective surface and shooting the scene and its reflection. Instead of the normal rule of thirds, try placing your horizon line very low in the frame or position your subject in one corner of the frame, which will make the space seem much larger. The contrast between the dark and bright areas will usually help define the subject clearly and add some drama to the scene. Just ensure you set exposure for the highlights (bright areas of the scene) so that the shadows stay nice and dark.
By using a single spot of color in an otherwise neutral background you’ll make the viewer zero in on the burst of color. A person wearing red clothing will stand out really well against a neutral background or landscape, even if they’re very small in the frame. This will bring more attention to your main subject and give the image more impact on a small screen. It might not seem that important, but this small step can make the difference between a good image and a great one.
NOT outdoor shots with kids playing in awesome woods even I would love to play in, but everyday shots. Like all artists, photographers have to put themselves out there to get noticed and sell their work.
If people are buying your photos, then you are establishing clientele who will pass on your name, therefore, increasing the likelihood of sales. You can work at a magazine, newspaper, advertising agency and virtually any place that uses photography. Blogs can also be linked with other sites to increase your readership and exposure to your photographs. There, you can create photo albums and share your photos with friends, family and the world. You can enter your photographs into magazine contests, as well as e-mail magazine editors and advertisers to see if they want to buy your photos. With practice and a developed portfolio, your talent will show through and viewers will begin to notice your photographs. You can also find plenty of patterns in nature, such as pebbles on the beach, a pile of chopped logs or the veins of a leaf.
It’s hard to make pictures of everyday activities like homework, dishes, folding laundry, and mopping floors seem this interesting. It’s not exactly everything you mentioned, but I find her feed inspiring and I hope you will too. If you don’t have any personal connections to the photography industry, then it’s important to ask around to find someone who works in the photography industry or has connections to it. In this tutorial you’ll discover eleven great tips for composing stunning iPhone photos that will stand out even on the smallest of screens. I sincerely commend you for trying to capture these every-day moments so many take for granted; good luck!!!!
