12 ways to be a better BlackBerry photographer



Taking a good photo is really important. It’s annoying to send around family and friend pictures that are blurry and pixelated once you open them on a desktop. The latest BlackBerrys have cameras strong enough to take a decent picture, you just need to know how. Here are 12 simple tips to taking a good pic with your BlackBerry.

1. Get Closer
While you can capture panoramas with your camera, you’ll take the best possible photos by getting close to your subject matter. Go ahead and take a few extra steps toward what you’re shooting—the images you capture will be much more engaging.
