Our smartphones are marvels of technology and they are even more powerful than the computers used by NASA to get mankind to the moon, which is pretty amazing.
One of the best features of our smartphones is the high resolution cameras that pack a lot of technology into our pockets allowing anyone to take amazing pictures without having to be a pro photographer, or so we’d like to think.
Features such as auto white balance, focus, and exposure along with color correction are all great to have available but mean absolutely nothing when the person taking the picture doesn’t understand how to compose the picture.
The rule of thirds is a basic concept that appears to still be a mystery for most photographers but now there is an app for those people. Camera 51 focuses on the thing that most smartphone photographers seem to be clueless about, which is the all-important composition.
The app uses the sophistication of your phone to dissect the scene you are shooting, with an on-screen guide which allows you to know where you should point the camera.
Anyone that has no idea how to compose a photograph should definitely download this free app to start taking better pictures!
