As a photographer, I welcomed the opportunities a smartphone camera gave me. I can still remember the first time vividly. It was more than ten years ago so it was a crappy camera of course. The images were pixelated and blurry. For most of the time, I still photographed with my DSLR. But there was something different about the images I took with my phone.
Last year I made an amazing journey sailing from Colombia to Portugal on the Nomad Cruise. On the way, we made one stop on Saint Maarten Island in the Caribbean. The island itself is not the most interesting place but I did want to go to the beach where the planes fly over. I’m always trying to take photos of this kind of touristic hotspots a little bit different.
Keeping your photos organized can be quite the task, but if you have an iPhone and a little bit of downtime, it’s easier than you think. All photos taken on your iPhone end up on the camera roll. You’ve probably seen that. The camera roll is basically just a running list of all photos and videos that are saved to your device.
You have been using your smartphone camera to take pictures for quite some time now probably. If you have the desire to go beyond the regular smartphone snapshot it is time to invest in some smartphone photography apps! Because photography apps are essential tools for improving your smartphone photography.
