As easy as it is to open your camera app and take a photo on your iPhone, getting the shot you want isn't always so simple. Often, light is the culprit, creating glare where you don't want it and washing out otherwise Insta-worthy shots.
But there are plenty of professional photographers who only take photos on their iPhones and share them on Instagram, so you know that there has to be a way around the natural obstacles a scene throws in your way. This week, Apple launched a new website packed with tips for tackling the most challenging scenarios. Sixteen short videos break down everything from shooting during the golden hour to taking a vertical Pano.
Some of the videos, such as "how to shoot a unique angle" and "how to shoot a one-handed selfie" offer tips that are more practical than technical, but others solve problems that are serious threats to an A-plus Instagram game. Ahead, we pick five of our favorites and paired them with "shot on iPhone" images that make the grade.
