It was three months until I left for a trip to India and Nepal where I was going to be a photographer for a company in Australia trekking to the basecamp of Everest. I had just dropped my phone in the parking lot of my condo and shattered the screen.
If you've owned a smartphone, you've probably done this at least once, and you know that its the most gut-wrenching, infuriating thing you can do. I drove to Verizon, cursing under my breath, thought about how much this would cost me, and that I should probably just get a new phone.
As it happens, I had an upgrade. I also thought about the benefit of having a nicer camera on my phone so that I would have a lightweight option to use on the trek. While my DSLR camera would always provide better photos, sometimes you just need a camera quick and wiping a phone out of my pocket would be the best option.
All this to say, sometimes the best camera is the one you have, and for many of us, that's just our camera phone. But like any tool in the toolbox, it's worthless if you don't know how to use it.
I've had it asked by friends and clients. Can you teach us how to use the camera on our phones to take better photos? Whether that's photos of your family or of your business, the same general rules and techniques apply. However, in this 7-day phone photography challenge, I specifically have the brand looking to take extra photos for their social media in mind.
For 7 days I'll teach you the process I go through when taking out my phone, composing an image and editing it for my Instagram or Facebook. Each day you'll learn a new step so that in 7 days you'll be a pro with your camera phone and maybe even have a few more apps to help you out.
There are no tricks or hidden fees, just 7 days together geeking out over our camera phones and falling in love with photography.
