Suddenly, everyone’s a professional photographer. Or at least we can fool people into thinking we are.
There are now more smart phone photo and camera apps than what you can possibly fit on your device because of storage limits.
In my last blog post, I shared this: “With the onslaught of photo sharing sites such as Pinterest and Instagram in 2012, it’s not a surprise that photos are what people choose to share the most of and engage the most with.”
While the strategy for sharing photos remains important, so is the quality and “awesomeness” of the photos themselves.
Growing up in the 80′s, sure we took pictures. We had Polaroid Cameras that were amazing, giving us the physical picture in a matter of seconds. Now I have the Polamatic™ iPhone App which brings back the instant nostalgia of Polaroid pictures. Very cool.
These camera apps (there are now over 5,000 of them) make taking pictures exciting. Because of their ease of use, they make learning how to take them even more fun.
One of my favorite photos apps I’ve downloaded recently is the Camera Awesome app by the folks at SmugMug. They recently shared this Infographic visually showcasing a sampling of some fun facts and tricks to help you take awesome pictures with your smart phone.
