From cities and towns all clad in colourful lights to our homes decked up with rangolis and decoratives, the canvas is all prepared to click some great pictures. Smartphone photography has come a long way over the years and mobiles now offer one of the easiest cameras to click good images. Here are some tips that come handy to click better photos this Diwali
Have a lot of contrast in the frame
Diwali photos most likely will be clicked at night. When using the night mode, use blacks and darkness to your advantage. Ensure the frame has a lot of contrast to make the subject stand out even more.
Night mode is the best option
Use Night mode for fantastic low light photos. Make sure the subject isn’t moving around much and don’t shy from using portraits even in very low light getting sufficient colours in the frame.
Keep your phone steady
To click low-light photos, it is important to get maximum sharpness out of your iPhone. Keep your phone steady. If you don’t have a tripod for your device, look for places to keep your camera or where you can support your hands for minimum shakes.
Look for right angles
Look for light angles that make the photographs bright and lit up. You can also try various angles to capture the best shot.
Play with exposure
When shooting in low light, there can be many parts of your image that may not be receiving sufficient light. Lack of light in the photos can make them appear grainy. Be sure to look out for where the light is good. Manually controlling the exposure while shooting in the low light conditions helps to keep the photograph crisp and sharp.
Avoid zoom for low-light photos
Also, do not zoom while clicking photos in low light as it may distort the pixels.

Buyers of the 2021 Apple series can use the Cinematic mode to add a dramatic tone to their photos. Shooting videos in the new cinematic mode can get even better looking video of the festivities at home.
