Phone Photography

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.

Description from site

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.


Like the post I wrote previously, “Take Time to Submit Your Images”.  I feel you really should get your work out there, so I found these cool sites just for Phone Photography.

Add your images to Mobile Photo Awards.  Check out the images that have won awards!  All I can say is “Wow” there are some amazing creative people out there.

Here is a contest for you all to check out at  The deadline is September 23, 2014, so you have time to make fun phone images.


PopPhoto also has an article called. “10 Tips For Taking Better Photos with You Smartphone”.  Just remember that these are suggestions.


The images below are some of my favorite Intagram posts:

  1. Loved this. Will use a lot of this and will download Camera Awesome. I use Camera+ and the Photoshop app the most. Phototoaster gives me some great images for my art work.

    • Hi Noel! I need to check out the Photoshop and Phototoaster app. I do have the Lightroom app but didn’t know about Photoshop. Thanks so much for sharing your apps! 🙂
