Do you ever take subpar pictures of an amazing landscape and wish you could capture the moment better?
Do you ever scroll Instagram and curse the photography gods for not blessing you with the art of being able to capture perfect moments?
Do you ever think there’s no point to work on improving your photography because you don’t have or can’t afford a good camera?
Well, let me clue you in on something: photography isn’t just a talent some people are born with. It’s a skill, both art and science, and it can most certainly be learned.
You also don’t need an expensive camera to take great photos.
Honestly, about 80% of the photos you see on this website were taken with an iPhone. Partly because I’m lazy and always have my phone on me, and partly because I just like how simple it is.
I only upgraded recently to a more advanced camera system as I want to take my photography more seriously and use more advanced techniques.
In fact, I’d argue that learning with a smartphone actually helped make my photography better as it forced me to focus on creative composition (aka, what’s in the shot) rather than getting all the settings just so.
If you’re interested in improving your photography – whether you use a smartphone, a DSLR, or a mirrorless camera, you’ll find these tips helpful.
