“In the 1990’s it was unheard of to take mobile phone images, or even for the concept to exist.  Camera development is in part, driven by mobile photography. Last week Leica, the German lens and camera manufacturer, well known for their high-end products announced a collaboration with Huawei.

Compared to “traditional“ cameras (those with mirrors and without) phones have one huge drawback that especially affects portraiture photography. All phones use a fixed wide angle lens (with the iPhone the equivalent would be a 35mm lens on a full frame camera). While today there is a trend for photographers to shoot using 35 mm lenses … often it is too wide angled.

One last word before we discuss the basics: it is important to remember that the zoom on your iPhone is a digital zoom not an optical zoom. Therefore, you will see a deterioration in quality if you shoot using it”.

It’s been a while since we updated our Tip of the Day section and it’s one of the many areas we are going to continue to focus on. Ensuring that you are kept up to date with everything you need to know relating to mobile photography and art.

We were asked a question today relating to mobile video.  This was the question:

I was wondering whether imovie has a setting to upload square pictures, which almost all of my images are. I was thinking of putting in a sequence of an evolving edit as a background to my voice. If not imovie, can you recommend a different video app that can do this without a steep learning curve?”

Check out our recommendation below…
