With the reduction in price of DSLR cameras, may people have DSLR cameras, have the interest in photography but have ideas or “a little knowledge” and as a result photography myths are created. This blog post discusses 3 of these photography myths. 1) My Camera is the Problem – I need to upgrade “I would be able to take much better photos if I had a better camera.” No, it won’t … Better equipment does not produce better photographs by virtue of it being more advanced. Would you tell a chef that the reason his food tastes so good was […]

Some of the results were very impressive when you consider they were captured on a mobile phone. […]

The photo below is one which I took on the new iPhone 4S, in the rain, on a cloudy day […]

I have included some examples below of photos taken on the iPhone and made better with some clever photo apps. TiltShiftGen This allows you to add blur, vignetting, contrast and saturation to photos. End result is below. HDR For Free This App is a free pseudo HDR app. A real HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo requires at least 2 if not 3 separate […]
