How To Avoid Taking Blur Photos

Looking out for and avoiding the cause of a blurry picture is key in getting crystal clear shots. A blurry picture may be caused by one of the following factors.

  • Your hand moved – when your hand moves when capturing, the resultant photo is very likely to come out blurry due to the motion. Avoid this by investing in a tripod stand. If you cannot afford a tripod stand you can place the phone on a steady stand or object and set a timer. You can also make sure to get a steady grip of the phone if there is no stand.

  • Dirty or smudged  lens – a dirty camera lens can result in a blurry photo. With our  hands always touching the lens and other dirty surfaces, it would be very easy to make the lens dirty. Making sure your camera lenses clear before taking a shot should be the first thing you do. You did not need costly material to get a clean lens. Use a clean cloth or tissue to clean the lens
  • Poor lighting – lighting is very important in photography and thus, taking photos in areas with poor lighting can result in a blurry picture. Take photos in properly lit spaces using natural light or getting some sort of artificial source of light. A popular one is a ring light. 
  • Zooming in too much – zooming in on an object can make the object look pixelated and blurry. If the object is too far it is better to go up close and take the shots or after taking the shot crop the image using a photo editing tool. 
  • Tapping the shutter button too hard – tapping the shutter button too harshly will shake the phone and this movement can cause a blurry photo. Regardless of if you have a firm grip or use a tripod stand, it is advisable to tap on the shutter button as gently as possible.
