    In the past days, I saw a discussion in our community about the "Grid" option for the smartphone, therefore, I decided to do a little research about it.

    What is the Camera Grid?

    The Camera Grid is a visual aid, a visual feature that you can use on your smartphone to divide your photo using four lines, which are displayed horizontally and vertically along the screen. The Grid is not visible after the photo is taken, however, the Grid is visible when you are taking the photo. 

    On what smartphones is the Camera Grid available?

    The Camera Grid is available on most smartphones and it can usually be found in the "Settings". 


    How to enable the Camera Grid on iPhone?

    From your Home Screen, you tap on "Settings". 
    Once you are in "Settings", you look for "Camera" and you tap on it.

    In "Camera", you scroll down to "Composition", where you have the "Grid". You can turn the Camera Grid on and off by tapping on the "Grid".

    You can take better pictures with your smartphone by using the camera grid. The downside is that older or cheaper phones do not come with this feature.

    This is one of the first thing that I learned when I shot my first video for school. It is really helpful!

    I receive the advice to use the grid from a friend. I ignored his advice, thinking that my perception of lines are perfect. I have never in my life been so wrong.
