If you’re an avid iPhone photographer, nothing’s more frustrating than setting up for the perfect shot just to have the picture come out blurry.

Taking multiple pictures in a row is one way to help improve the odds, but often times movement is being created every time you tap to take the picture.

Learning how to hold still and gently tapping will go a long way to helping but there are a couple of other ways to snap the picture that a lot of people forget they have.

The first is either of the volume buttons on your phone, which can make it feel like a traditional camera when the phone is held sideways.

If you have Apple’s famous white headphones plugged in, you can use the volume buttons to snap the picture on them as well.

Using the headphones to take the picture can come in handy, especially if you’re trying to capture candid shots or you have a tripod.

Whichever way you go, remember hold still!
