This publication describes techniques directed at utilizing a live viewfinder on inner and outer displays of a foldable mobile device. As foldable displays are becoming a more common feature of mobile devices, creative uses of the foldable inner display and the outer display are desirable. If a user uses the inner display as a viewfinder to take a photograph of one or more human subjects, the outer display, facing the subjects, may likewise be utilized as a viewfinder and include providing the subjects with prompts (contextual tips), e.g., to position themselves within the frame. Having viewfinders on the inner and outer displays of the foldable mobile device and providing contextual tips may enrich the communal experience of both user and subject.
