May someone show me how to take great pictures with the XA Ultra?

The camera is pretty good but a lot of my pictures don't come out as good as I want them too. The backgrounds are sometimes blurry, the pictures come out too bright and overall I'm not satisfied with the images I'm taking. I tried all settings too and I'm just not liking the results. I don't know maybe the camera is not that good?

 

But some tips would really help cause I do enjoy taking photos of stuff. Thanks

Hi @Ninjabird7,

I know how you feel, I am very bad at taking photos myself and am in awe when a colleague shows me all the great photos they were able to snap with the same phone model. The user @uliwooly on the forum has written a great thread full of tips and tricks on how to use the camera app in different settings, have a look:

Let me know if that helps, it aided me in my daily photography! Slightly smiling Face
