– Hey everyone, if you're interested in learning the foundations of food photography, using only your cell phone, then you're in the right place This channel is dedicated to teaching you how to take food photos so good you can taste them

(upbeat music) I'm Leigh Loftus, a food and beverage photographer, and this video is dedicated to teaching you how to take photos that make your friends wanna lick their screen, using only your cell phone If you're into that, subscribe over here, check in on Tuesdays for our new videos If you're really frustrated with seeing your friends photos that they've taken on their phone and you just don't know how they've done it, you don't even know where to start, by the end of this video, you'll have five new foundational techniques to make your photos better So, step one is to clean your lens So, oftentimes your carrying your lens around, you set it down, you might have food on it, or in your pocket it might just get dirt and grime on it, so just make sure to clean your lens and give it a look, make sure also there aren't any fingerprints on it

Step number two are the three different ways to open your camera I really wanna touch on this, I have a favorite way to do it because we all go through life, whether we're in our restaurants, and we see the perfect moment but we can't catch it because we can't fumble through our phone and get to our app quick enough, or you're with your family and the same thing happens My favorite way to open your phone is literally taking your finger and sliding from right to left and you're right in the camera app, no password needed So, also from your lock screen, if you don't have time to unlock it or it's not recognizing your thumb print or your face recognition, you can pull down from the corner and it opens this menu and you've got your camera button right here, again, takes you right in Lastly, I put my camera app in a location that I'm familiar with

So, you're gonna pick this for yourself Some people have it here, I have mine in the corner You have muscle memory as to where your apps are, but I recommend putting it somewhere on the home screen and then leaving it kind of in that location so that if you have a moment, where you need to capture something quickly, you can open the app as fast as you need to Technique number three are gonna be the five shutter release techniques The very last one we're not gonna show you today because it's actually a Bluetooth device

If you wanna learn more, just check on our details below Obviously, we're very familiar with the shutter release button, very easy A lot of people don't know that either your volume up or volume down button, mine's blocked because I have it on a tripod You can press that to release the shutter, not a beautiful shot, but boom, and then the one below it That's very beneficial if you're doing selfies

So, secondly you see I have my headphones plugged in here This is gonna be really great if you're doing any live action shots with say, maybe a bartender getting ready to pour a drink You can press and hold the volume up or the volume down button Step number four, we're actually gonna go into our camera settings and turn on the grid, comment below with the word grid if you already use the grid to frame your photos So, if you don't have your grid turned on, you're gonna go into your settings, and you're gonna scroll down quite a bit of a way, until you get to your camera

And then I advise turning, that turned it off, when it's green it's turned on And then when you go to your camera, you see these lines And this is gonna help you with your framing of your shots and where you place things And we will address the rule of thirds a little bit later, but it helps tell a better story Step number five, I'm gonna review the file format

iPhone automatically saves the file format as HEIF, which stands for high efficiency image format That's not actually the most compatible with other devices, so you may have had trouble in sharing with iPhone to Android I would advise switching it over to JPEG, and JPEG is actually a better quality, and we're gonna review that in a different video So, we're already in your camera settings, where we were before, and we turned on your grid Just at the very bottom of that list you can see formats

Click Open Formats, and typically, yours is going to be set on high efficiency, unless you've already changed it And it explains right here what the HEIF stands for I go ahead and switch mine, like I said, to most compatible and it will save as a JPEG You now have five foundational techniques to enhance your smartphone photography Subscribe over here, follow us every Tuesday for our new videos, and you'll be shooting like a pro in no time
