This is mainly for I phone 4's:
First, get to the camera mode and make sure your flash is off and not on auto.
On the the left side of the screen, there is a HDR mode that is usually off. Turn it on. The HDR mode is a mini image stacking item on your phone. Which improves the overall picture. With this HDR mode, You need to have a steady phone for this to work well. We will need something to "hold" the camera. This is where the clamp showed below comes in handy.
|This type of small clamp can be bought at Home Depot or any hardware store for a buck or two. It holds the phone upright and still for pics and video.|
When the picture is taken in HDR mode, there will be 2 pics. The first one is regular and the second will have HDR on it. Use the HDR one and erase the other pic.
|Non-HDR mode: Bright light overhead and some blurriness.|
|HDR mode: overhead light not as bad and the vegetation is sharper.|
