How to Create a Cinematic Image with a Cheap Camera or Even a Phone

There are many ways that you can create a cinematic picture while using a cheap camera or even a smart phone.

One of the most important aspects of photography is lighting.

Bright lights or dark shadows can be the difference between a great picture and a terrible one.

You also can download apps on your phone to change the exposure of a picture which your smartphone camera cannot do on its own.

Finally, make sure to pay attention to the angles on the items your photographing as that can make a big difference as well

Key Takeaways:

  • Make sure the lighting is set up properly because it can be the difference between a good and bad shot
  • If you plan on shooting indoors you are going to need two or three light sources excluding a ceiling light.
  • If you are using a phone to take your pictures you can download an app that can change the exposure of them

“Use a softbox to make the lighting softer and avoid harsh shadows. Instead of a professional softbox, you can use a white sheet – just stretch it and cover the lamp with it so that the light distributes.”
