Camera vs Smartphone

I used to be one of those people who wanted one of those large Canon camera’s because I believed they would help me take awesome pictures.  I was wrong!!

You see there is a lot more to taking good pictures than just picking the camera up and shooting.  You need to learn how to focus, make sure you have lighting, you need to know how to use your ISO function and all the other options your camera offers.  To be honest with you, I didn’t want to learn all that much about taking great pictures.  I just wanted pictures to document my children growing up.

The evolution of the Smartphone!  I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S9.  It takes amazing photos and  4K video.  It has slow-mo options and instant editing.  It takes 9.1 megapixel still photos while recording in 4K video.  

I’ll share with you a few examples of recent photo’s.

As you can see the Phone can take some amazing pictures.  I forgot to mention I have small hands so maneuvering a smartphone is way easier than dealing with a large camera.  For right now, I’m going to stick with my phone.  Maybe one day I’ll want to learn all the intricacies of owning a manual camera.

Happy and Safe Travels Everyone!
