Eyewitness Photo: The Message

BreakingModern — The old saying goes: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Do you buy it? I’m personally more impressed with a photo that can convey a few meaningful words well, rather than overpopulating with a thousand ones. Check out this burst mode capture from my HTC One Max.

What does it tell you?

There’s clearly a “No diving” sign painted onto the pool deck, and yet we have this child diving into the pool.

Rapid Fire

Burst mode is great when I want to capture a clear shot of the subject in an action pose — just like this dive into the water. As a bonus, it’s milliseconds before he’s fully submerged in the pool. Burst mode lets you snap action shots on the go. When you turn the feature on, your camera will snap several quick shots in succession. After the burst is completed, you can select your favorite from the group and dump the others.

Flip on the burst option of your HTC smartphone camera and try it out. Taking photos of people walking or running by with the burst option is my favorite shutter-bugging past time.

What are you capturing with your HTC smartphone? Send them over to me (in a URL preferably) via [email protected]. You may get featured in our Eyewitness Photo column. Be sure to mention your HTC smartphone model and any camera apps or mobile photo editing apps used.
