How to take Japanese pictures of fresh literature with mobile phones

A Japanese photo with fresh colors can dispel the heat of hot summer, cool and strong, and melt the hot and dry heart like ice.

A big aperture must be needed to take a fresh and artistic picture? Macro lens? Or a film machine? In fact, our mobile phones can do the same! There are plenty of dry goods here, telling you how to choose materials, take pictures, etc., so that your phone can also be full of style and take fresh Japanese photos.

Color selection

A fresh and artistic photograph needs a clean color relationship, and we can use the adjacent color principle to shoot. In the hue ring, two colors that are 90 degrees apart, or five or six digits apart, are adjacent colors. The hue of adjacent colors are similar to each other, with the same cold and warm properties, unified and harmonious colors, and the same emotional characteristics, such as red and yellow orange, blue and yellow green.

Choose adjacent colors as the basis of the color of the photo, such as fresh green and emerald green, comfortable sky blue and water blue, which makes the viewer feel comfortable at the first sight.

Photography shines

Sometimes, some complementary colors with strong contrast will be selected to highlight the main body, such as the complementary collocation of red and green, which can light up the whole picture. Adding warm colors to the plain and cool environment, such as shooting red objects such as cherries, tomatoes and strawberries on a white tablecloth, is refreshing.

Material selection

Japanese photos in a fresh literary style include many subjects, such as portraits, street photos, still lifes, etc. We can choose simple still life photos as the subject of introduction. It is easy to operate and suitable for us to practice with mobile phones.

Photography RECO

The materials for taking still life photos can start with some simple small objects around, such as a small electric fan, a cup of drink, a piece of watermelon, a camera, a small potted plant, etc. The selection of materials has greatly enhanced the sense of picture and sublimated the shooting theme.

Scene selection

Mobile phones do not have the same shallow view and deep expression as cameras. We should try to avoid this shortcoming. Therefore, we will choose some relatively simple and clean backgrounds to prevent the main body from losing focus. The window edge is a good choice, especially when the light is sufficient, you can start work by placing simple small objects.

The plain blue sky is also a common background for taking fresh photos. Especially when it is dotted with milky clouds, the whole picture brings a fresh sense of physical and mental comfort.

Light is very important for Japanese style photos. The bright light brings a sense of hierarchy to the picture and the subject, making the whole picture transparent and bright, and more refreshing. The window sill with light transmission is often the best choice for shooting scenes.

Shooting composition

Having mastered the selection of light scenes, we need to learn how to make our works excellent through composition. Composition is an unavoidable proposition for a work. A reasonable composition can make the work interesting and make the picture simple and easy to watch. The traditional composition method is also suitable for mobile phone creation.

In the center point composition, the subject is in the middle, which directly emphasizes the subject and attracts the audience’s attention to the center of interest.

The trichotomy method divides the picture horizontally and vertically into three parts. The subject is on a line, which is the focus of vision.

Triangle composition, the subject forms a triangle, and there is a stable force in it.

If the novice is not proficient in the composition of the mobile phone, he can also use the composition designed by some photography apps and the composition frame lines in interphoto to save a lot of effort.

Post modification

The later stage is the highlight, which largely determines the tone of a photo. Here we do not need to use the PS and LR of the computer. The powerful late stage APP in the mobile phone can meet the requirements for the late stage of fresh Japanese photos.

We use interphoto to make some late adjustments to the photos taken this time to make them more Japanese.

This is the picture taken. The picture is a bit dark, so we will increase the brightness of the picture and reduce the contrast.

The colors in Japanese photos are always blue and green. Here we reduce the color temperature to make them appear a little blue, and then adjust the RGB curve of the pictures.

Finally, with fading effect, noise and sharpness, a Japanese style still life photo was born.

Of course, you can choose to directly use the filter in the later APP to directly process the whole photo. Here, interphoto’s haze filter is used, which is more convenient and fast.

More attempts

Mobile phone photography is more flexible and casual than the camera. You can take a fresh and comfortable Japanese photo when you are not careful.

There is no need to deliberately take a shadow at hand. Through the later stage, it is also a fresh Japanese photo. first-classMobile photographyWork is also inseparable from inspiration and practice. Pick up your mobile phone and try different things.
