Maximize your potential to get the shots you want with this guide to photography for both Apple and Android phones

There’s a saying in the photography world that the best camera for the job is the one you have with you when a photo opportunity arises. Thanks to the boom in camera-phone technology, today we’re lucky enough to have a camera to hand to capture all those incredible moments. But are you making the most of that powerful tool in your pocket? Do the photos you have taken tend to be blurry, or look nothing like the picture you remember seeing? If you want to shoot incredible images with your phone, buy Smart Phone, Smart Photography.

Covering simple techniques that will allow you to get the image that you see every single time, you will soon be telling your camera what to do with confidence. Starting with The Big Picture, get to know your camera phone and the rules behind taking the perfect shot. Next follows a chapter on Taking Great Pictures, where the key disciplines of photography—portrait, abstraction, macro, still life, and plenty more—are examined, with each section packed with tips to help you get the shots you want. Finally, the Post-production chapter explains how to use apps to edit and enhance your images and create incredible prints for display.
