How to Take a Picture From a Photo

If you have some old photos lying around and you want to make them digitally available, taking a picture from the original is an excellent way to do it. Not only does it preserve the image and make it accessible, but it also allows you to edit it on a computer or mobile device if you so desire.

Before you take a picture from a photo, there are some things that you should keep in mind. For example, it is important that you avoid taking a shot that has an out-of-focus background. This will degrade the quality of your photo and result in a grainy, less-than-perfect image.

Use the camera’s manual settings instead of automatic ones if possible. These settings control the quality of the photograph by controlling shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Each of these settings affects the brightness of the photo differently, so changing them manually will give you better results.

Position the phone’s camera as closely to the photo as possible. This will ensure that the image fits perfectly into the frame and the background is minimally distorted. If the camera is too far from the photo, it will cause a halo of light around it.

Be sure to use a low-flash setting for your photo if possible. This is because flashes often result in glare and can make the photo look unnatural. You can get away with using a flash if you are taking a photo of a dark subject and the light is coming from a natural source, like a lamp or a window.

Clean the camera lens before you take a shot

It is normal for your phone’s camera lens to collect dust and other lint over time. Rather than wait until you have a dirty camera lens to take a picture, use a soft handkerchief to wipe away the dirt and make the image look cleaner and more professional.

Compose the shot to be symmetrical with the background and subject

Symmetry is an incredibly pleasing compositional technique that is often overlooked in modern photography. Whether you’re taking a portrait or just a candid shot, it’s important to set up the frame so that everything lines up as well as possible. This can be accomplished by using a gridline, as shown below, or simply lining up the subject so that they’re facing the same direction.

If your subject is moving, tap the screen to correct the focus just before snapping a shot. This will ensure that the moving subject has as much focus as possible.

Invest in a good quality camera and avoid the cheaper models that don’t have the best quality optics. A high-quality camera will make your pictures much more vibrant and clear.

Choose a high-quality lens for your camera and take it with you whenever possible. These lenses are often more durable than cheap models, and they will be able to handle even the smallest scratches or blemishes.

Adjust the background, lighting and focus on your picture before you take it to ensure that everything looks its best. This is especially important for photos that feature a lot of detail or are otherwise complicated to frame.
