I've been a Mac devotee since the 1980s, but it took me a long time to switch from a Blackberry to an iPhone. There are some things the iPhone does incredibly well - one of them is photography. As long as you have adequate light for the tiny lens, you will be amazed at the sharpness and color fidelity. And if you enjoy creative photography, there are five million apps that will help you with added effects and pizzaz. I hope some of you who use Instagram and other apps will add to this thread with your experience.
This post is about a simple workflow I use for most of my WHAYWT thread posts. It does involve using Adobe Photoshop which is not an inexpensive program, but one that is indispensable to me. It's features are also included in many less expensive photo editing programs, so you might find this easy to replicate in the software or app that you use.
To start off, I take a bunch of quick captures in a few different locations. I usually prefer the shots taken in daylight, but today I chose one from my office which had a mixture of natural light from the window and fluorescent light from a desk lamp. Here is the original shot.
And here is the final image after about 10 minutes work:
And following is what happened in between.
