Shoot symmetry / lines / curves

Watch and shoot Symmetry / Lines / Curves.

While shooting this kind of a frame, keep the horizon in mind. You can achieve taking a good picture either by watching the lines / curves closely within the frame or by turning on the Grid on your mobile camera.

How to turn on Grid lines on my iPhone camera:

These are usually referred to as ‘Rule of Thirds‘ in the photography language.

  1. Launch the Settings app from your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Photos & Camera.
  3. Scroll down, and under Camera, next to Grid, tap the button to enable.

Lauch your camera app and you’ll find the Grid enabled on your screen.

I know if this setting was right on the camera screen it could have been easier, but unfortunately you have to go back to Settings to disable it too.


If you’re using an Android mobile, you could watch this video below to enable the grid easily:
