So many of us have highly sophisticated and expensive cameras but there is a lot you can do with a simple smartphone camera. In fact, it has spurred a movement. According to the Guardian, your mobile phone may be your best camera because you always have it with you. And the quality of the shots are pretty good. I love the spontaneity of the idea and am inclined to agree about its value.
And, as the Guardian says, there are so many great apps to make a dull photo fabulous:
But, for many, the initial snap is just the start. It's the raw material for a new creative process. Most mobile phone cameras take very dull photos. But it doesn't matter, because there are hundreds of apps to help you turn them into something amazing. And that's what's really at the heart of it. Costing pennies, mobile photography apps give you the creative power of Photoshop, and more besides, without being tied to your desk. This makes mobile photography incredibly liberating for the creative photographic spirit. Suddenly, every free moment is an opportunity to both take and craft images. These apps have accelerated the creative process, as well as allowing you, quite simply, to be more creative, more of the time, for less money.
I say, snap away and just enjoy all the results however you decide to apply them!
