"The best camera is the one that's with you." - Chase Jarvis
Intro by Chamira Young
The above quote is from photographer Chase Jarvis (and it's also the title of his past book!). Needless to say, it couldn't be more true, especially in an age where everyone has their cell phone on them 99.99% of the time. We're in an age where many view these little machines as not just an accessory, but as an extension of themselves.
As a photographer, I'll readily admit that I don't carry my hefty DSLR camera with me everywhere I go, but you better believe I have my cell phone with me just about all the time. There have been times when I've been out for an innocent errand or walk in the park, and an unexpectedly interesting scene enfolds before me. Before I realize it, I'm reaching for my cell phone to capture that moment.
Whether you consider yourself a hobbyist or pro, knowing how to use your cell phone camera is a must these days. The story behind an image is as important as the image itself, so make sure you know how to effectively use that little camera so that you can be ready to capture all of life's precious moments.
Kathy at Photodex has some great tips to make the most of these increasingly powerful little machines.
