The best camera for any job isn’t necessarily the most expensive, the most powerful or the one with the broadest set of features. It’s the one you happen to have on your person when the opportunity presents itself. The most commonly used camera is one that forms part of your smartphone. We live our lives with our phones and our cameras and are taking more pictures than ever before.
If you own a recent iPhone, you have access to a five-or eight-megapixel camera, an easy way to share your photos online courtesy of the built-in social networking tools, and an enviable collection of third-party image editing applications to choose from. You have a complete portable darkroom in one tiny tablet and with a bit of care, consideration and forethought will immeasurably improve your results. This guide shows you how you can enhance your smartphone photography, both by improving your technique and by kitting yourself out with the best tools for the job.
