Lately, I’ve been using my iPhone for daily photographic purposes. Because, you know, when you’re a photographer you see opportunities for a good photograph many, many times a day. Since phones nowadays have good quality, this makes the task easier. Anyone remember the sad quality of phone cameras just five years ago? Anyone?
I love editing apps. Some people hate them, and that’s fine, but I think they are missing out. It’s an elitist attitude to huff and puff how people these days think they are photographers because they go on Instagram and throw a filter on their food photo. Firstly– I haven’t really met anyone who thinks they are a photographer because of Instagram. Instagram is a wonderful tool, as it gets people thinking about taking photos. Who cares what they are of?
Plus, there are fabulous editing apps such at Afterlight, BeFunky, Lenslight, and Photoshop Express. I use these apps all the time to edit my iPhone photographs. I’ll be honest: I get real carried away with these apps, but I can’t help it. It’s so much fun.

I used Afterlight for the light leak and dust effects. Shout out to Nick, who pointed this app out to me a couple years ago. It’s amazing and I never want to let it go.
