The other day I wrote about how I was using Instagram again and starting to post photos there more than other places online. As part of that I am also focusing on using my iPhone for the photos I take over my DSLR. I have an iPhone 7 and really like the pictures it takes. Also, I find that it is much easier to have it on me all the time. After all, isn’t there some kind of quote about the camera you have with you being the best one or something?
I’ve tried bringing my DSLR along with me, but it ends up being in the way which ends up keeping me from using it. Taking photos with my phone allows me to quickly take pictures of whatever catches my eye as I’m out in the world. I also find focusing and exposing the shots easier using a touch screen. Plus, it is a really fun challenge to take interesting pictures on a mobile device. I’m also trying to edit the shots on my phone as well with apps like VscoCam.
To help me take some better pictures I got some accessories from my favorite online shop for photo stuff, Photojojo. I got their Iris lenses and some other things to help get the most out of my pictures. I’m really excited to take on the challenge of mobile photography again. When I got my first iPhone 3G I took pictures all the time and it was lots of fun. I have seen some really cool results with pictures taken by iPhones and hopefully I will get some myself.
