Whether you want to capture that perfect sunrise or snap a sensational selfie, modern mobile phones are fast becoming the ultimate portable camera. But with so many pics being posted how do you stand out from the crowd?
Here are a few tips to create the Wow shot to get you more likes and more kudos.
Step 1 - Crop and Position, open your photo and click the edit button. head strait to the crop feature first which will allow you to straighten, position and remove unwanted elements of the photo. as shown above I have cropped out the other cyclist and positioned myself somewhere close to the rule of thirds.
Step 2 - Light, there are a lot of options here but the quickest and best one is the brilliance setting, click on this and adjust to correct the exposure and enhance the lighting
Step 3 - Colour, this could also be a topic in itself but to keep it simple just choose the saturation setting and give it a boost. watch as the colours come to life, but be careful not to overdo it.

We have a BBL Christmas Hamper to give away to the best shot taken while out on a ride (please do not take pictures while riding).
Good luck, take as many shots as you can and get posting!
