Are your iPhone photos tack sharp, or do you sometimes end up with blurred images when you use your iPhone to take pictures? Here are a few tips for sharper iPhone photographs:

First, spread your feet for better stability. Brace yourself against a tree, a wall, or any solid object nearby, or snuggle up to your companion and lean on his/her shoulder.

Your iPhone instructions tell you to tap the shutter release button icon on the screen. The problem with this is that you may move the iPhone slightly, resulting in a blurred picture. There’s a better way. The photo isn’t actually taken until you release pressure with your finger on the screen. So instead of tapping the screen, press the shutter release button icon, compose the photo, brace yourself, then gently remove your finger from the screen, which activates the shutter release.

Shoot like a sniper! Breath in, hold your breath, gently release the shutter button, then exhale.

Try these tips, and watch the sharpness of your iPhone photos improve.
