The great thing about modern smartphones is that they are packed with incredible features that make them excellent cameras for beginners (and enthusiasts and professionals as well!).
In fact, you can do a great deal with your smartphone in terms of photography, from capturing people to landscapes and everything in between.
One of my favorite photographic pursuits is minimalism. I love how clean and simple minimalist photos are. It's a challenge, too - there's so much "noise" out there and so many details that we can include in our images, so it's a nice change of pace to try to eliminate all that clutter and produce a simplified, yet powerful image.
And, as you guessed it, you can tackle minimalist photos with your phone.
In the video above, the fine folks at COOPH give you six easy-to-implement strategies for taking minimalist photos with your phone.
The tips they provide are both practical and creative in nature.
For example, you can use your phone's macro mode to take beautiful close-ups of just about any object. They use water spots on a glass shower door and the tire of a car as examples of subjects you can use to create an interesting macro photo.
And that's just the start!
