The one that’s with you. At least according to author and photographer Chase Jarvis who wrote the similarly titled book. It’s for iPhone photographers but the idea applies for all camera enabled smart phones.
For me a phone served only one purpose, making phone calls. At least that’s what I thought until buying my new smart phone the Android based HTC Legend. The phone has totally blown me away and as a photographer wannabe I was curious of its camera in my hand.
I knew that it can’t compete with my DSLR, until I found a great app, namely the Camera360, that has some built in effects that can make my otherwise blown photos a cool look. I know they aren’t world class photos but still I have the chance to capture a moment where I wouldn’t take my big camera.
Sometimes I feel like I was living in a cave and sometimes like being trapped by technology. Sometimes I wish I still my old “stupid” phone that could make only one thing but doing it well: connect me with my friends. Now by all of us having a smart phone it seems easier to post our thoughts through Twitter or Facebook but it can’t replace the verbal communication which I miss more and more.
So here I’m writing this post on my phone and sharing some images.
