How to capture perfectly lit pictures with your Pictar

How to use window light to create perfect pictures? One of the most important factors in photography is….light! We created this short tutorial to give you helpful tips on how you can use light to create the perfect pictures with your mobile phone. You don’t need a fancy camera or lighting equipment, all you need is a smartphone, Pictar and um….a window. Let’s get to it, watch the video below!

1. Light it up! Light determines not only brightness and darkness, but also tone, mood and the atmosphere, It’s without a doubt every photo’s MUST HAVE!

2. All you need is a window: Forget about fancy lights, professional lighting techniques etc. all you need is a source of lighting in your photo AKA...a window! 3. Main light or backlight: You have two main options here… You can use your window as a main light, to give a soft natural light to your photo, or you can use your window as a backlight, to create a really creative and dynamic portrait. Position your subject as you wish, there’s no right or wrong simply a matter of taste.                         4. Composition: Use the “ Rule of thirds”! Draw two lines vertically (use your imagination don’t actually do it….:) to form three evenly-spaced sections. Now draw two more lines horizontally. You now have nine equal-sized squares, your subject should be positioned where any two lines cross. 5. Exposure: Use Pictar’s exposure compensation wheel to fine-tune your image, and add a little bit of detail into those highlight areas, while maintaining the overall richness of your photo.                                           We encourage our readers to share photos via our social media!
