How to use your iPhone as a photographer

This won’t be a long post, as I just want to share some good links I have found in regards to iPhone photography. Mobile phones have come a long way and with Apples release of the iPhone 5 soon, I thought it could be befitting. There are some really beneficial tips and tricks as well as some apps you may want to check out.

I for one can say I have taken some amazing pictures with my iPhone 4s, so check it out, let me know what you think.. Have you replaced your traditional camera with your phone yet? What is your favorite photo app?

Share some of your iPhone pics!

  1. I haven’t replaced my digital camera with my iPhone yet, but I am using it more and more for pictures. I really like using the app Camera+ because of all the cool shooting modes, the grid for picture taking and other functions.

    1. I don’t have the digi cam I want yet, so in the mean time the iPhone is a really good substitution. It’s handy and practical. I am curious to see how far they can take “phone cameras”.

  2. Thanks for the information, Deanna! I use my iPhone 4s for almost all of my “photography” and the advice here will certainly help me take better photos. (I need all the help I can get.) 😀

  3. I think motography is a great genre of photography and it is possible that these cameras may replace compact point and shoot cameras but I would not give up a full frame DSLR for a smart phone.
    In digital photography size matters, and the bigger the sensor the better.
