The last several challenges have been DSLR heavy. It's time to give them a break and give the smartphones/iPhones a turn.
Taking pictures with your smartphone doesn't have to be limiting. There's plenty that they can do nowadays, especially with a little help from a few handy apps out there.
There are a handful of apps I'll recommend you head out and get for this challenge. Some are free, some are a couple bucks, all are worth it:
Camera+ ($1.99) - Your regular phone app is okay. But this one is better. It has a couple handy features, but most importantly it allows you to adjust exposure and focus separately. It could mean the difference between a good shot and a great shot.
Camera Awesome (Free) - This one is available for iPhone and Android. Similar to Camera+ but it's free for the time being.
Snapseed (Free) - The power to adjust and enhance your picture to perfection on your iPhone. And did I mention that it's free? So what's the hold up? Go get it. Here's a younger version of me from the past to show you how to use it quickly.
Flickr (Free) - Especially for the SG Photo Challenge, you'll need this to upload your pics quick and painless to a Flickr set.
InstaCollage (Free...for now) - Not used all that often, but handy if you have a few pics that work as a story together or want to show before/after processing shots so that others can see the difference.
Those are a couple to get you started, but there are many more out there.
So for this week, put your DSLRs away and stick with the smartphone. Don't forget everything you've learned the past few weeks: how to compose your shot, choosing the right settings, making use of the light available, finding your subject and watching your background.
Share the challenge and get the word out that you're shooting and getting better every week. Shooters can get in on the challenge whenever they like.
