    on March 3 | in Insider Secrets, Uncategorized | by | with No Comments

    Cell phone cameras were the best and worst thing to happen to photography, as it is easier than ever to pull out your device and capture a fleeting moment. But with this effortlessness comes mindlessness. Too often people whip out their phones, shoot something without even looking at the result and move on.
