Is smartphone photography becoming a trend? The obvious answer to that is it’s not only the biggest pop culture trend but one that is here to stay. Haven’t we all taken pictures of food at restaurants and quickly updated our social media profiles before tasting that first bite? Every where you go there’s always someone pouting for a selfie. But there’s more to smartphones that just uploading a quick selfie or sharing your attempts at food photography. What if you could replace your camera with a smartphone and actually take awesome pictures like a pro?

Smartphones are called smart for a reason, or actually for several reasons and the one thing that we use our smartphones the most for apart from calling each other, is to connect through sharing of pictures. It’s a trend that going to stay because how else are you going to showcase your fabulous life to the world?

We’ve all got that one friend who thinks they’ve cracked the master photographer code, looking all hipster with their DSLR taking pictures of random things and posting stuff on their Insta feed waiting for those likes to come in. But here’s the deal. You DON’T need a fancy camera when you can learn how to shoot like a pro using your trusty smartphone.
