Look at the screen and also at the object that you want to take a photo of. Make sure it is correctly focused by moving close or further from the object. It is also advisable to touch the part of the object in your screen that you want it to be focused before taking a snap.
It is bad to zoom
Zooming before taking photos makes image look blurred and also reduces quality. Smartphone doesn’t have physical lens that magnifies object as you zoom. Therefore this means that you are cropping before taking digital photos which lowers the quality of image. It is much better to avoid zooming before taking photographs. Instead you can try camera lens for clear zooming.
Use photo editing app
Such tools will allow you to straighten, crop and even improve quality of your photograph with help of a filter. Most of them like adobe Photoshop express, GIMP and Pixlr will cost you nothing and they are easy to use.
