You might not be composing award-winning photos, but if you cross paths with the right celebrity at the right moment, you'll want to know how to make your shot a tabloid-worthy one.
You will need
- A camera phone
Step 1 Set your camera phone Set your camera phone to take the highest quality (and largest file size) photo possible.
Step 2 Clean your camera lens Make sure your camera lens is clean—and that you know exactly where it is!
Step 3 Arrange your subjects Arrange your subjects or scene as you see fit.
Step 4 Make sure there’s plenty of light Make sure there’s plenty of light. If you have a flash, turn it on, and stand with whatever other light source is around behind you, so it shines on your subject.
Don’t block the light with your own body, casting shadows on your subject.
Step 5 Get in close Get in close so that the subject is in full-frame.
Step 6 Use the rule of thirds Use the rule of thirds, framing your subject in either the left or right third of the frame, not dead center—creating a more interesting picture.
If you’re shooting a celebrity at a club, use the rule of fourths—if the bodyguard is four times your size, don’t take the picture.
Step 7 Keep the camera steady Keep the camera as steady as possible—the less movement the better, so stabilize yourself as best you can.
Step 8 Snap your shot Snap your shot and hope for the best—or the worst, as the case may be.
