Advice to participants

“Before you think about what, when and where to take photos, it’s important to know all of your phone’s features, settings and capture features. As smartphone camera technology continues to evolve, there may be features you didn’t know before. For example, an ultra wide angle lens or a night mode that allows you to capture the perfect moment even at night. In addition, there are some homework that should be done before taking a photo or filming. The creator should think in advance of how the idea created in the mind should make sense in the photo. Choosing a theme and planning a composition – all of this should be done in advance. Most importantly, keep in mind that choosing a subject can take a long time before all the conditions are right for you to get the best possible shot. For example, the correct position of the sun or moon, lighting and favorable weather conditions can make you wait more than an hour. But an exceptional shot is definitely worth trying, ”recommends U. EidžiÅ«naitÄ—.

EidžiÅ«naitÄ— adds that even those who follow all the advice should understand that the formula for creative success is always individual: “When you shoot, you must first try to tell an interesting and engaging story.
