1 Take a better shot from a high angle

Shooting from a high angle will help the photos on the dining table become clearer and fuller of the dishes in the frame. However, this angle also allows the shadow of your hand to enter the frame because the light usually comes from above.

You can fix this problem by turning on the grid inside the camera so that everything is more properly aligned.

3 Do not shake when taking pictures

Just a slight shake of your hand while shooting will also lead to blurred photos. To make it easier to take photos with the iPhone camera, here are a few things you can try:

  • Via Apple Watch: open Camera on your Apple Watch and take a photo while iPhone is still on a tripod.
  • Use the volume buttons on the side of the device: press the volume up or down button to take a photo.
  • Use the headset's volume buttons: plug your headphones into your iPhone and you've created a remote for taking photos! You don't need to wear headphones, just use the buttons on the cable to take pictures.

  • Using a selfie stick: Most selfie sticks have a shutter button on the body of the stick.
  • Use Bluetooth buttons: sometimes sold with a selfie stick, but you can also buy these buttons individually. Connect this button via Bluetooth to your iPhone and use it to use the camera.
  • Self-timer: you can set a time of 3 or 10 seconds, so you have time to make sure everyone is ready before shooting.
