knowing the basics can even get you far. If your smartphone has several
MP's in resolution, some have 8MP or more these days, even one with 3MP
even does the job. This is just for documentation, we're not trying to
win the Pulitzer here.
As long as your phone as auto focus it should focus immediately on the
object. Just have enough lighting on the object, and no shadows - so
sometime you like to have 2 lamps crossing each other - one on the right
and left side - at an angle to reduce shadows. Use the correct exposure
setting for indoors photos- some phones have options for which type of
lighting are used, FL bulbs, Incandescent. But you also like to have a
Macro lens setting option for those closeup shots (usually depicted with
a Tulip icon in your phone's menu) in oreder to view the components up
close. And keep your hand still while taking photos :)
