I’ve been capturing moments on my iPhone 6s for sometime now. I use it as my main photography device in fact. A good friend of mine was generous to send me a Canon Powershot point and shoot camera to help me get acquainted with manual controls before upgrading to a DSLR. When I do use my iPhone, I use quite a few camera apps. The picture below was taken with an iOS app called FILCA. The iPhone camera sensors paired with any app gives you pretty good quality photos but I know nothing beats a DSLR. I hope to own a DSLR one day and when I do I’ll be posting my photos.
I’ve often seen posts from photographers stating that the best camera is the one you own. In other words, a skilled photographer can use a basic camera to capture something and make it look magical. If you can’t capture an angle with an iPhone, you probably won’t be able to do the same with a DSLR. It takes time to capture something special but it is also nothing wrong with keeping it simple. Here is a picture of a pink rose I captured.
It’s simply amazing how far smartphone cameras have come. With access to control ISO and exposure and shutter speed, I’ve been able to capture some very high quality visuals. Whenever I see something I want to capture I pull out my iPhone 6s to seize the moment.
If you’re reading this and you like taking pictures, what do you use most—your phone or DSLR camera?
