My Favorite Cellphone Snaps From 2015

At the end of last year I put together my annual Best of 2015 photographic collection. Those shots were from my “real” camera, i.e. my Nikon D800, and my “Just for fun Point-n-Shoot” ultra-awesome Sony Rx100mIII. What was missing from that set were any photos taken with my cellphone. I suppose this is due in large part because as a professional, I simply haven’t considered my cellphone a ‘real’ camera. Rather, it’s a device that will take pictures when I don’t happen to have a real camera, or when I just want to quickly throw something up on Facebook or Instagram. Still, I thought I’d go ahead and share a few of my favorite cellphone snaps taken in 2015. I hope you enjoy them.

(These were shot using a Samsung Galaxy S4, and processed using the Snapseed app. (I’ve since upgraded the the Galaxy S6 this last December.)

    Great collection of both the beautiful and the fun images Gary! I like the idea of having a separate post for the cell phone snaps! :)

  2. Jim Goldstein Says:

    Amazing how much cell phone cameras have opened up new photo opportunities. If you’re like me you refer to your phone more times as your camera than a phone. Great to see these Gary. Great stuff. I sit on my cell photos for the most port perhaps I’ll start to change that up.
