How To Fix A Blurry Picture?
1. Take a closer look at your camera :
One of the main reasons for blurry pictures is that you’re too far away from what you’re photographing. If there are no zoom options on your camera, try moving towards what you’re taking a picture of until it fills the frame acceptably. If this doesn’t work, read step two.
2. Turn off the flash :
The flash always makes your pictures come out very bright and harsh, but many times it also tends to make everything incredibly sharp except for the subject closest to the camera. Some cameras have a special mode called “night mode” or something similar, which disables the flash while keeping shutter speed high enough to avoid blurring from handshake (if your hand isn’t stable, put your hands on something solid and press the shutter button slowly).
3. Turn off any red-eye reduction :
Another option that some cameras have is a special mode for taking pictures of people where it emits an artificial burst of light before the actual flash goes off to close their eyes and reduce red-eye. This looks nice in person but completely ruins picture clarity by filling everything equally. Make sure this option is disabled if you want to minimize blurriness caused by people blinking at the moment of exposure.
4. Try another camera or lens :
If none of these options work, try switching lenses or buying a new camera altogether. Some very cheap point-and-shoot models have inferior focusing systems to maximize profit; in that case, you’re better off spending the extra money on a real digital SLR (DSLR).
5. Clean your lens :
If none of these options worked, then there might be something wrong with the actual lens itself.
Make sure nothing is stuck between the camera and lens or even on the outside of it; make sure any smudges are removed by using a special cloth designed for cleaning lenses. Always keep it clean from dust so that no small particles can obstruct your view when taking pictures. Also, if you have a removable lens, try removing it and consider buying a new one. Unfortunately, few people know how vital this step is…
6. Keep your camera steady :
One of the most overlooked causes of blurriness is too much handshake in a picture. Just one degree of movement from being entirely still can cause your photos to come out looking worse than if you just took them without a camera at all! Get into a comfortable stance and brace yourself before taking the picture to minimize this problem. If you have no idea what I’m talking about reading this article.
7. Check for dirt on your sensor :
If none of these steps work, then it might be time to have your camera serviced. There are some service centers specifically designed for cleaning cameras and sensors so that they can look over them carefully and make sure nothing is wrong with any components before returning them to their owners less broken than they were before.
They usually use special equipment to do this so that they can make a detailed analysis of what exactly is wrong with your camera and fix it without going through the hassle of opening up its casing.
8. Convert to black and white :
Sometimes a blurry picture looks better than a black and white photo because all the other things surrounding it might be distracting. Still, having an overall sharp image with precise subjects in focus has more impact than blurry backgrounds. Just convert your photo from color to black and white using Photoshop or any other program you have on your computer for this purpose.
