Believe it or not: all pics are from my Samsung Galaxy S6 Android

(The picture above is not a petroglyph or an alien, it’s my creepy shadow taking a pic with my Samsung.)

Many people have been asking and are surprised to learn that I take all my pics & videos on my Samsung  Galaxy S6 Android. No, not the one that blows up, but the one that shoots pictures, you’ll want to blow up. I’m not a photographer and have never taken any classes. I love photography, but thought it would be too technical a skill for me to learn. (I’m better at just doing vs following instructions.) With my camera phone,  I get to shoot awesome pictures without carrying heavy camera gear. I love it because it makes a total amateur like me look pretty darn good. I also take advantage of the google photo editing tools and confess to having an affinity for the “pop” button. Is that cheating? Probably by classic photography standards it is, but don’t they have all kinds of magical lenses and tricks up their sleeves too?

So, what kind of camera do you use? And do you think it’s cheating to “pop” the pics?

  • ‘Popping’ is not cheating!!! You’d be surprised at the manipulation techniques used by the professionals. Although your Samsung should take some of the credit for taking the beautiful images, YOU have a great eye for composition – which is a huge part of photography. I think you can also credit Mother Nature for crafting amazing locations to romp around on.

  • Phew! Thanks for relieving my conscience and for the compliment. : ) I think if you take enough pics as I have been doing, you’re bound to get it right a couple times. Absolutely, Mother Nature is the star. I’m just the student in awe. I’ll keep clicking, learning and trying to improve.

  • The age old saying’s always been “the best camera is the one you have on you”. Photography’s really all about freezing moments and the feelings that come with them in time – more power to the people who can do that without carrying pounds of gear on them. 🙂

    …of course, new toys are nice too, but still.
