If you have a fancy photography camera to take photos with, that's great! 

It is, however, not needed for standard photos of your screens. Mobile phones have cameras that can take such good photos nowadays, they absolutely suffice.




Any photo can be taken in landscape or portrait orientation. For screen photos we recommend to hold your phone sideways and thus take the photos in landscape orientation.




Generally speaking we recommend to be as frontal to the screen as possible. The more you are at an angle to the screen, the less ideal the photo is. 

Of course each location is unique and the available space to take a photo from may be limited. Therefore of course an in-between can work as well.




Clean Shot

An important thing to keep an eye out for is to make sure nothing is obstructing the screen. Most commonly this could be people that walk in front of it, but depending what angle you take the photo from it could be furniture as well. Please watch out for that and make sure the screen is always captured with no obstructions. 




How far away should you be from the screen? That's a tricky one and the answer is a bit loose. Don't be too close, don't be too far away.

It's all about finding the right balance. We want to have the screen be visible, but we also want to see a little bit of the surrounding area. Keep in mind, at the end of the day your screen is attractive because of your location!




Having people in your photos is always HIGHLY recommended. People give context, show the audience at your location and of course are relatable.

However we do understand that guests may not want to be photographed. Sometimes a colleague or coworker walking by can do the trick! 😉
