There’s an old saying in the photography community: “The best camera is the one you have with you.” In the years we've been writing about digital photography, smartphones have increasingly become that ubiquitous camera. Indeed, most of today’s smartphone cameras have specs you might have found in a point-and-shoot a few years ago. But even though your smartphone has many other features, the goal of this book is shutterbug-related: We want to help you get the most out of your phone's camera features.
First, we'll walk you through our favorite tips for mobile photography: Learn the best way to capture bright sunsets, how to hold your device so it doesn't shake, and tips for taking quick shots. After that, we take an in-depth look at photography on each of the major smartphone operating systems: You'll learn how to take, edit, and share images whether you're using an iPhone, an Android phone, or a Windows Phone 8 device. Once you've gotten a handle on great mobile photography, we suggest some third-party apps to enhance the experience. And if you're a professional photographer, don't miss our section on using your iPad or Android tablet to improve your workflow.
The only surefire way to become a better photographer is experience. Luckily, digital photography allows you to make as many mistakes, cost-free, as your memory card can hold. And as you combine technical knowledge and compositional awareness with lots of practice, you’ll be able to capture moments of brilliance. We hope this book will help you along that journey.
