How to Take Better Shots With an iPhone

the magic of an iphone

by Lucas Compan

I Love My Canon And Sony Cameras. However, I Love Even More Taking Photos Whenever My Eyes See Something Worth Of A Shot. Meaning, Sometimes, An iPhone Is just Easier To Grab And Shot. And I Do It Every Single Day. I Have Taken 20K+ Photos In The Past Ten Years, Either For Fun Or Professionally – Which Makes An Average Of 5.4 Photos Per Day, every single day. 

I Am Going To Share A Sample Of My Photos Taken With An iPhone 6S+ And iPhone 8+. Hope You Enjoy And Feel Encouraged To Do The Same With Your Smartphone. It's A Great Camera You Carry In Your Pocket. Use It More Often, And Your Photography Skills Are Going To Improve More And More.

The Secret: The More You Do, The Better You Become. Like Olympic Athletes, The More They Train, The More They Achieve Success And Break Previous Records.
