AKA: Smartphones do not make you smarter
If you are reading this article, you are in one of two categories – you are someone who has already lost or accidentally deleted photos on your iPhone, Android or Blackberry and regret it, or you are someone that this will happen to in the future. No matter which category you’re in, these five lessons that I have learned are meant to help you preserve those precious memories for years to come.
Whether you take photos with your iPhone or Android smartphone or consider yourself self-taught amateur photographer, we’ve got a lot in common.
Every month (and occasionally more often than that) I will be bringing you the in’s and outs’ from the land of digital photography. From tips and tricks for getting the most out of your camera to tech news product reviews and a few lessons I’ve learned along the way… we’ll cover the whole spectrum. My goal is for you to get some value, learn a thing or two and if you feel inclined, drop me line or leave a comment so I can improve along the way.
In the meantime, we’ll kick things off with my current Top 10.
