3. Use Natural Light! Smartphones are not great with low light. (Most indoor shots are low light.)! ! Go outside for the best photos.! ! If you must shoot inside, shoot near a window. Take the photo with your back to the window.! ! Don’t use a flash. They cause a yellow light or shadows in your photo. !
