We are currently living in a time of Nano Technology that is rapidly growing. The days of a mp3 player being just an mp3 player, a camera just a camera and a cellphone just a regular phone are long gone. The Smartphone industry is clearly taking over the digital age.
Today, digital cameras are commonly installed in a variety of gadgetry. Camera phones and Smart Phones are the fastest growing industries in the digital camera market. Mobility and Quality of photos are constantly improving everyday (higher megapixels, better lenses and high capacity storage). I love taking random photos when I’m out hiking at Yosemite or riding my bike at Venice Beach. But the bad news is, as a photographer these Camera Phones are still nothing compared to our beautiful DSLR cameras that are equipped with fast shutter speed and control excellent aperture control. The good news is that iphone apps/ Android apps can help us to edit and turn disaster images to picture perfect photographs.
I have collected 5 iphone and 5 android FREE and paid apps that you can play with to make your random photos into cool images that you can be proud to share. Please leave a comment below to share any images that you took with mobile phones. It can be anything from random photos to landscape, or portraits.
