How do you get such details using a mobile camera?

It’s quite simple. Keep your eyes open, and watch around, observe.

  1. Make sure your mobile phone camera lens is clean.
  2. Hold the mobile as close as possible to the subject / surface, etc.
  3. Touch to allow the camera to focus.
  4. Preview on the screen if it’s sharp.
  5. Tap to take a picture.

Take multiple shots. You can review them later and choose the best that has all the details you love.
