My last post was about using my iPhone to photograph Panoramas. This got me started on smartphone photography, so I did a bit of research on phone photography and figured I’d share some of the information that I liked with you all today.
All of my iPhone photography is personal. I never shoot specifically to sell these images and I share them on my Instagram feed called, “Loving life shown here”. If you would like to follow me here is the link. I promise to follow back!
Some of the goodies that I found regarding phone photography:
I found an app called Camera Awesome. You can really have fun with the app, but if you want all the goodies, you’ll have to pay for it. It’s worth mentioning it to you if you’re really into Phone Photography.

Camera Awesome takes your photos to the next level by shooting faassst and taking sharper, better-exposed shots. Make your memories come alive with stunning professional effects, and 1-Tap sharing on the sites you love.
