Are you focused on high quality photos when on vacation?
We here at dotPhoto work hard to take the best photos we can when we go off on vacation. Myself, I get my trusty DSLR ready and start practicing a week or so before we leave. What I’m beginning to think is unusual is that I take almost all my everyday photos with my camera phone and not my digital camera.
Of course when we have gatherings of friends and family or I attend our daughter’s basketball games I set the mobile camera app to auto and take dozens and dozens of photos and delete the ones I don’t like. But on vacation we go to different and interesting places and I’m afraid that unless I use the DSLR I just won’t get the quality of photos I desire and, unlike games and other gatherings which happen pretty often, I won’t get a second chance.
Recently I began seeing articles that said that the quality of cameras being built into phones was improving. Much of what I read was coming from the manufacturers so I had my doubts, but these articles put me on the lookout for more reviews and information. While hunting around I came across this piece by Karen Loftus telling me that I can rely on my mobile phone’s camera. So take a look at the results.
Did this photo get your attention? But it’s not mine it’s Karen’s. Karen interviewed a number of well respected photographers and here’s the first thing she learned.
- Seriously, leave the DSLR at home.
