Tips for Camera Phone Pictures

  1. Take lots of pictures

    Since your camera phone is always with you, take advantage of capturing those spontaneous moments. Take lots of pictures to increase your chance of capturing just the right shot.

    Use pictures to communicate - it may be faster and easier for both you and the recipient.

  2. Move in close

    Many camera phones lack a zoom lens, so make sure you move in close to capture your subject

    Fill your phone's display screen with your subject to create pictures with greater impact. Up close you can reveal telling details - a wrinkled nose or an arched eyebrow.

    Don't get too close or your pictures will be blurry and distorted. As a general rule, stand about one to two feet from your subject.

  3. Shoot at eye level

    Direct eye contact can be as engaging in a picture as it is in real life. When taking a picture of someone, hold the camera at the person's eye level to unleash the power of those magnetic gazes and mesmerizing smiles.

    For children and pets, that means stooping to their level. Your subject doesn't have to stare at the camera - all by itself that eye level angle will create a personal and inviting feeling that pulls you into the picture.

  4. Watch the light

    To create impactful pictures, move in close and fill your viewfinder or LCD with the subject.

    Unless your camera phone has a built-in flash, low light = bad picture. Try to take pictures in bright light. Without adequate lighting, your camera phone pictures will look dark and grainy.

    In sunlight, move around where the sun beams onto your subject. Indoors, turn on extra lights to brighten your subject.

  5. Use a plain background

    A plain background shows off the subject you are photographing. When you're ready to take your picture, force yourself to study the area surrounding your subject. Make sure a tree isn't growing from the head of your subject and that no cars seem to dangle from their ears.

    Check your picture in the your phone's display screen and retake it if necessary.

  6. Try different angles

    Start by shooting at eye level. *CLICK*

    Capturing many angles will add variety and interest to your photos.

    Keep the ones you like, delete the ones you don't.

  7. Set resolution to high

    Many camera phones include a low, medium, and high resolution setting (picture quality).

    Setting your camera phone to the highest setting gives you the best quality pictures.

    The quality difference might not be apparent on your phone's display screen, but you'll see it on a computer screen.

  8. Discover your phone's capabilities

    Flip through your phone manual and see if your phone has any of these features:

    Picture messaging - send pictures from your phone to others.

    Picture effects - snap black & white or sepia pics or add different frames.

    Photo caller ID - set a picture for people in your address book so it appears when they call.

    Wallpaper - save your favorite picture as the background for your phone.

    BLUETOOTH® - wirelessly send pictures to Bluetooth Wireless Technology enabled devices.

  9. Stay still

    Jittery hands cause blurring.

    Keep your hand still a second or two after shooting, since the shot is still processing.

    When you hear the click sound, it doesn't mean you captured the photo, it just indicates that you pressed the shutter.

  10. Be courteous, be legal

    Cell phone etiquette includes being mindful of its camera. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind.

    Ask permission before taking people's picture.

    Don't use your camera phone in places like health clubs or theaters.

    Places like airplanes, courthouses, concert venues, and military bases, don't allow cameras or phones. Abide by their rules.

    Phones have limited storage space. Send pictures to online photo sites, like KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery, instead.

Queen Beatrix Assasin Trial

Five people were killed and 12 injured during Dutch national holiday celebrations today when a car deliberately ploughed through a crowd, narrowly missing an open-top bus carrying Queen Beatrix and the royal family.

Prosecutors said the incident had deliberately targeted the royal parade but was not an act of terrorism. Police did not indicate why the popular queen might have been the target of an attack.

A Dutch male, aged 38, driving a small black Suzuki appeared to deliberately try to ram the royal family's bus at high speed as they celebrated the queen's day national holiday with a parade through the city of Apeldoorn, 55 miles (90km) east of Amsterdam. The car ploughed through police cordons metres away from the royal bus before crashing into a stone monument to the late Queen Wilhelmina.

Police declined to identify the injured driver saying he had no police record or history of mental illness. He had been arrested but could not be questioned immediately as he was being treated in hospital. Twelve people were injured in the attack; four were in a serious condition.

Dutch media reported people flying through the air after the car swerved through railings and a large flag-waving crowd who had lined up to watch the popular royals parade past, waving to their subjects en route to the Het Loo palace.

Members of the royal family watched from their bus in shock as the car careered past them. Television footage showed Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and his wife, Princess Maxima, standing at their seats. Maxima held her hand over her mouth in apparent horror.

This year's Dutch national holiday celebrations had been marred by rumours that Queen Beatrix was about to abdicate to make way for her son. Dutch monarchs have a tradition of stepping down to favour their offspring. When Crown prince Willem-Alexander, an expert in water management, celebrated his 42nd birthday earlier this week, media speculated his time had come. His mother Queen Beatrix was 42 when her mother stepped down to let her take the throne.

"No one doubts that Willem-Alexander is ready to take over. He has been steadily groomed for his position as monarch," said NRC Handelsblaad this week, noting that the prince had lived down his young bachelor days as "Prins Pils" (the beer prince). He and his photogenic wife and three young daughters regularly appear in European society magazines.

The queen has 85% approval ratings and is more powerful than other European monarchs, playing a role in the running of government and overseeing legislation.

The Dutch government called off any remaining official activities for the annual holiday, when people in the Netherlands traditionally flood into city streets to drink, eat and set up stalls to sell bric-a-brac from their attics.
