8 iPhone Camera Settings You Must Master to Take Better Photos

3. Burst Mode

Have you ever tried to take a picture of a fast-moving object on your iPhone?

Often, the object in question is long gone before your phone can process the image. And even if you manage to get the shot, your subject will often be blurry and distorted.

The solution is to use Burst Mode. This takes a rapid-fire series of shots that’ll give you a selection of photos to choose from. You can keep the best and discard the rest.

To use Burst Mode, keep your finger pressed on the shutter button while taking a shot. You can also hold either physical volume button for this. Burst Mode will automatically engage and continue until you release your finger.

4. Lock the Focus and Exposure

If you want to take the quality of your photographs up a notch, you’ll need to start experimenting with focus and exposure. It’s impossible to consistently take professional-grade snaps without having at least a basic understanding of how the two functions work. Failure to learn will ruin your smartphone photography.

In simple terms, exposure measures how much light reaches the phone’s electronic image sensor, while focus determines the sharpness of a photo.

On your iPhone’s camera, you can manually lock both values. It means you can customize your shots more effectively; you won’t have to worry about the app automatically overriding you.

To manually lock focus and exposure, open the camera app and tap and hold on your photo’s focal point. After a couple of seconds, you’ll see the AE/AF Lock banner pop up at the top of the screen. To unlock it again, tap anywhere on the screen.
