N8 tips & tricks: Take better portrait shots with your 12 megapixel camera phone

I am having a good time with the Nokia N8 camera and by having such an amazing camera with me all the time I am trying to figure out ways to capture great photos and also keeping my eye out for opportunities. I just read a nice article that shows you how to take a professional portrait picture with the N8 and recommend you check it out. The photo they took with the N8 is quite impressive and at the end of the post there is a bullet list of ways to take an excellent portrait picture.

Most of the time I just use the auto mode when taking photos, but it seems if you dive into the settings a bit more you can capture more amazing photos so I plan to educate myself more about the options available. Like the article mentions I always seem to have a face that’s too dark and a background that is too bright and now know techniques (like changing the exposure) to help fix this in the future.

you could probably take some pretty sweet HDR images with this, and leave the digital camera at home. If thats the case, this is a great phone for those of us who like those multi-exposure images :)
