Using your iPhone to take and edit photos
Like most hobby photographers, I can't take my DSLR with me everywhere I go. I usually try to carry my Panasonic Lumix point and shoot, but there are times I forget. Luckily, like most people these days, I have a camera phone. The camera on my phone (an iPhone) is decent to use in a pinch, especially if there is good natural light available. Also, there are some great apps for editing iPhone pictures. Right now I'm using theCamera + app. Not only can you edit photos with cool effects, you can also use it to take photos. It includes a zoom function which is great as the regular camera app on the iPhone doesn't allow you to zoom. I took the above photo several weeks ago with my phone (the view of the Detroit River outside of my office building) and I used Camera + to add a border and HDR effect to the photo.
