Take HDR Photos and Panorama Photos and Use the Grid

The Camera app includes a feature called high dynamic range, or HDR. HDR takes three photos in immediate succession with slightly different exposure settings, and then combines them into a single photo that has a better color balance and intensity than a single photo.

To take an HDR photo with your iPhone, you turn on the HDR feature in the Camera app, and then take the photo as normal. The Camera app also has a Grid feature that you can turn on to help you compose your pictures and a panorama mode for capturing landscapes.
