I've always tried to keep my gear light and simple on the account that I always have my two toddlers and my dog in tow, so carrying a whole lot of stuff is just not going to happen. Another thing is I am a single mother and my budget is limited, I was still able to buy some awesome gear and little things to help take better photos.
Alright, so we all know photography is more popular now than it ever was before, with millions of pictures being uploaded somewhere online every few minutes. With that in mind, I thought writing a post to help others to, simply and quickly, take and make more amazing images would be a nice thing to do.
657 Billion. That's the estimated number of photos being posted online every year. It's also estimated that 85% of those photos are posted online using smartphones. In consequence, mobile photo editing applications have become popular and almost a necessity for most users and photographers, including myself
There's no doubt smartphones have changed photography forever, whether we like that or not, it has. In 2015, two billion people on the planet used smart phones with 90% of them taking pictures and 85% of them sharing those images on social media sites like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Those are some pretty big numbers and I'm convinced those numbers grew bigger in the last two years.
