Now that practically every phone on the market has a camera, it’s easy for anyone to become a ‘photographer.’ What isn’t nearly as easy is consistently capturing quality images using those phones, especially if you don’t have any background in photography.
But a new app called Camera51 aims to solve these woes by becoming a little composition instructor on-the-go.
Currently only available for Android, Camera51 uses the Phidias engine — a collection of sophisticated algorithms — to analyze the lines, shapes and content you’re framing up. It then determines the best composition based on that analysis, and prompts you to move your smartphone appropriately using a clever little visual.
And that’s it, super simple. By applying things like the rule of thirds and the golden triangle to your images, it hopes to take standard smartphone shots to new compositional heights… automatically.
Give the app a shot and then be sure to drop us a line in the comments and let us know what you think? Is “Auto Composition” the future of smartphone photography?
