For all you frustrating iPhone photographers that work hard to get that awesome shot just to have it come out blurry so often, today's tip is for you.

You can always take many shots in a row to help improve your odds of a clear pic, but in many cases, the blurry shots are because of the movement created every time you tap to snap the shot.

Holding perfectly still and tapping gently on the screen also helps create clean shots, but there are a couple more ways to take pictures that a lot of probably forgot or didn't know they have.

One alternative is to use the volume buttons on the iPhone, which turns the process into more of an old-school camera method specifically when holding the phone sideways.

If you plug Apple's famous white earbuds in, you can use the volume buttons on those headphones to take a picture as well.

Using the earbud volume control to take a picture can be handy when you're trying to take a candid shot or if you are using a tripod.

Whichever way you go, always remember: hold still longer!
