Chase Jarvis famously defined the best camera as the one you have with you. That definition proved true for me the morning after I took most of the photos in this series of posts. After parking for church, I discovered a saucer magnolia that I had not noticed before. Having no other camera with me, I snapped some photos with my iPhone.
The advantages of smartphone photography are attractive. You almost always have a good-quality camera with you, and the editing and sharing tools are built in! The combination I use is Camera Awesome for photographing, Snapseed for editing, and Instagram for sharing.
