To enhance the skills of others, Tiffany gave some top photography tips and showcased some of her favorite shots she took in Los Angeles with her device to motivate others.

Try shooting in RAW format

Shooting in RAW provides more information that gives you detailed editing capabilities. And the RAW format gives you an uncompressed image and thus contains all the data and details of the captured image without any deletion or modification, but it takes up more storage space.

And with a resolution of 48 megapixels, you will have more flexibility in editing and bringing the image to life, and adjusting the exposure and focus during shooting helps to capture the desired scene. In-camera exposure adjustment simplifies editing.

Learn the basics of composition

Taking great photos isn't just about having advanced photography tools, it's also about understanding some basics of photographic composition. For example, Tiffany recommends shooting at or around sunrise or sunset, when the lighting is most ideal, known as the "golden hour."

Composition in photography is one of the most important elements that help the success of a photograph, as it helps to arrange the elements within the frame of the image, which makes it comfortable for the viewer to feel and feel about it and its content. In fact, the guidelines and rules for composition may be many, but Tiffany mentioned some of her favorite composition techniques, Such as leading lines, negative space, symmetry, the rule of thirds, and the use of layers. And stated that the use of these techniques along with photography during periods of ideal lighting will help to transfer the images of the iPhone to the next level.

Leading lines They are elements in the image that lead the viewer's eyes to the main places in the image. These lines can be created by default by a variety of objects in the scene such as roads, walls, rivers or circular lines in buildings. They are used to direct the viewer's attention, such as lines of buildings that lead to the sky. Or a path leading to the sea or trees at the end.

and negative space or blank, such as leaving an empty space around the main subject of the image, to make the viewer's eye focus only on the subject.

And as for symmetry, it's all around you, like trees, mountains, cars, planes, boats, ships, houses, all of that can have symmetry that makes a great picture.

These are some examples of some of what we have mentioned to make the picture clearer to you, and whoever wants professionalism should research and practice until he reaches mastery.

Choose a topic and practice until you master it

Cityscapes are Tiffany's favorite subject to practice with, as seen in these stunning photos of Los Angeles, and she says that choosing a favorite encourages you to practice more until you finally get it right.
